Director, Writers on Board for Marvin the Martian

Hang on to your Illudium Q-36 Space Modulators: Marvin the Martian is now several big steps closer to his own CGI-live action hybrid movie, with a director and writers coming on board to make it a reality.

Alex Zamm, who also is set to direct a Hong Kong Phooey movie, has signed on to direct the film for Warner Bros. and production company Alcon Entertainment, according to the Los Angeles Times.

A pair of TV writing veterans, Paul Kaplan and Paul Torgove, has signed on for the screenplay, and Mike Myers is being discussed as a possible voice actor for the lead role.

Warner Bros. and Alcon, which produced the current hit The Blind Side, is looking to release the movie at Christmas 2011.
