Seth MacFarlane Talks ‘Flintstones’ At SXSW


We’ve known for a while about Seth MacFarlane’s plans to relauch “The Flintstone”, but haven’t heard much detail. From the sounds of it, the project is still moving ahead and he had this to say at SXSW a few weeks ago (info courtesy of sandiego.com)

“It’s still in the early stages — I’m finishing a rewrite on the pilot. We’re trying to, essentially, stay true to what that show is. There’s something cool to me about, in 2013, turning on your TV and seeing ‘The Flintstones’ and having it look like ‘The Flintstones.’ There’s really not a lot about that show — other than the references to 1960s America, which really come through in the writing more than the visual — that needs to be changed visually and stylistically. They invented the template that we’re using in animation. We kinda want to keep it, more or less, the same. The stories that we tell will be a little more current.”

The biggest worry on everyone’s mind is what if he screws up a classic, to which MacFarlane responded “My thought was, I can’t [screw] it up any worse than ‘Viva Rock Vegas.'”

No dates have been specified, but with the movie premiere of “Ted” and the continuation of Seth’s 3 televisions hows, it may be a  while until we see the new-aged stone-aged family.
