Speedy Gonzales speeds to the big screen

The classic Looney Tunes character, Speedy Gonzales, is headed to the big screen in his own feature film. The mouse speedster, notably smaller than Warner Bros.’ other fast-moving icon, RoadRunner, will dazzle his way into theaters, with comedian George Lopez providing the voice. New Line Cinema plans the movie as a mix of live-action and CG animation, creating a hybrid in style similar to the Chipmunks movies. Speedy debuted in the 1950s as a regular nemesis of Sylvester the Cat, and even won an Academy Award in 1955 for best short subject with a toon simply named “Speedy Gonzales”. He’s last been seen in the movies “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” “Space Jam”, and “Looney Tunes: Back in Action.”

Lopez, who has also provided a voice for Beverly Hills Chihuahua, is excited to get started, working along side his wife as producer, Ann Lopez. “Speedy is going to be a misunderstood boy who comes from a family that works in a very meticulous setting, and he’s a little too fast for what they do. He makes a mess of that. So he has to go out in the world to find what he’s good at.” That path becomes clearer once Speedy befriends a gun-shy race-car driver.
