because the spirit of Looney Tunes hasn’t yet reached the ninth circle of hell

24 February 2010 7:47 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Speedy Gonzales: The Movie is in the planning stages. It’ll be a hybrid of live action and CGI. That’s bad, but it’s not all. Head for the hills, hide the children, and brace yourself: George Lopez, the unfunniest man in Hollywood, will be providing Senor Speedy’s voice, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But wait -- it gets even worse: the character has often courted criticism that the ethnic characterizations of him and his compatriots (especially lazy cousin Slowpoke Rodriguez) are stereotypically racist and severely outdated. Aware of this, New Line and the producers plan to update the brand with a modernized sensibility (it takes place in present day) under what Ann Lopez calls George's "Latino seal of approval." (No need to throw fuel on the fire that serves as an immigration debate in this country.) "We wanted to make sure that it was not the »

Lopez Courting Controversy As Speedy Gonzales

24 February 2010 2:01 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Latin comedian George Lopez is getting animated for a controversial cartoon movie role, as racially divisive Looney Tunes character Speedy Gonzales.

Warner Brothers cartoonists debuted "The fastest mouse in all Mexico" in the 1950s as a nemesis of Sylvester the Cat, but courted criticism for Gonzales' stereotypically racist depictions.

The Valentine's Day actor will lend his voice to the mouse in the forthcoming Speedy Gonzales film but he's hoping to revamp the character to make him politically correct.

The comedian's wife, Ann Lopez, who will serve as producer, says: "We wanted to make sure that it was not the Speedy of the 1950s - the racist Speedy. Speedy's 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." »
