First look of Coyote vs Acme out

Earlier we had reported that Coyote vs Acme, a live-action/CG hybrid film that wrapped principal filming in New Mexico in 2022, was shelved for a $30M tax write-off.

The studio had done this before with Batgirl and Scoob! Holiday Haunt. However, the Coyote vs. Acme backlash was strong enough that the studio reversed its decision. 

Eric Bauza, who is voicing Wile E. Coyote in the film, took to X, to share the first look at Coyote vs. Acme. The first look poster had an animated Coyote seated beside his live-action lawyer, portrayed by Will Forte. Additionally, Lana Condor can be spotted sitting behind Coyote and his lawyer, although her role has not yet been disclosed.

Erica Bauza shared the image with the caption, “See ya in 2024!!”

The movie is inspired by a fictional 1990 New Yorker article by Ian Frazier, which reported on Coyote’s lawsuit against Acme for personal and emotional injuries and damages he suffered from their products. 

The movie was written by Samy Burch, who has won praise for her screenplay for Todd Haynes’ May December, and directed by David Green, whose credits include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016).
