“Weird Al” Yankovic has signed a production deal with Cartoon Network that includes a live-action feature film. The movie will not star “Weird Al” as the story revolves around a teenager but he will make an appearance in the flick and is planning to direct it. But don’t expect it to be hitting your TV too soon. The comedy has already been written but it has yet to be greenlit.
Here’s what the comedian had to say about the Cartoon Network deal on his official blog:
When I say that I’ve “just” signed, that means that I actually signed several months ago, but this is the first time I’ve been allowed to openly talk about it.
Without going into too much detail, the good folks at Cartoon Network decided that they liked me and wanted me to provide some content for them – series, features, animation, live-action… they were open to anything. So after a couple years (yes, really) of the lawyers going back and forth, we finalized a deal – now all I have to do is start making stuff!
The first thing I’m on track to do for them is, in fact, a live-action feature film.
