The big screen adaptation of classic '60s Hanna-Barbera 'toon THE JETSONS is once again in active development, with today's announcement that Warner Bros. have hired two new screenwriters to re-shape the live-action project.

Newcomers Van Robichaux and Evan Susser, hot off a buzz-worthy Black List script last year, have been tasked with updating the previously produced draft of the potential franchise-starter written by FANBOYS scribe Adam F. Goldberg.

It's at least comforting that Warner Bros. are actually looking to talented writers to work on a movie such as this, because let's face it they don't have to. The visual potential of the concept alone will ensure this has an audience and huge box-office potential, but what's spectacle without story?

No director is currently attached, although it would be great if the studio managed to persuade Robert Rodriguez to return - he dropped out back in '07 when this project was originally mooted. With his penchant for balancing ultra violence with family-friendly fare, this would at least be more appealing than another SPY KIDS or, god forbid, SHARKBOY AND LAVAGIRL 2.

More on this as it develops...
