Coyote vs. Acme is an upcoming American live-action/computer-animated legal comedy film starring and based on the character Wile E. Coyote and the ACME Corporation from the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons, and the magazine article of the same name originally published in The New Yorker by Ian Frazier.[3] Produced by the Warner Animation Group and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, the film is being directed by Dave Green from a screenplay written by James Gunn (who also serves as a producer), Jeremy Slater, Jon Silberman, Josh Silberman, and Samy Burch. The film is set to star John Cena, Will Forte, and Lana Condor.


After every ACME Corporation product backfired on Wile E. Coyote, in his pursuit of the Road Runner, he hires an equally-unlucky human attorney to sue the company. When Wile E.'s lawyer finds out that his former law firm's intimidating boss is ACME's CEO, he teams up with Wile E. to win the court case against him.[4]




In August 2018, Warner Bros. announced the development of a Wile E. Coyote project, titled Coyote vs. Acme, with The Lego Batman Movie director Chris McKay as producer and Jon and Josh Silberman writing the screenplay.[5] In mid-December 2019, Dave Green signed on to direct the live-action animated hybrid film, while Jon and Josh Silberman were replaced as screenwriters, though they remained as producers.[6] In December 2020, McKay left the project, while Jon and Josh Silberman left their producing roles and returned to screenwriting duties alongside Samy Burch, Jeremy Slater, and James Gunn.[1] Along with the departure of McKay, it was reported that the film would draw inspiration from the fictional New Yorker article of the same name by Ian Frazier.[1]


In February 2022, John Cena was cast as the film's main antagonist, described as the lawyer in defense of ACME and the former boss to Wile E.'s lawyer; he previously collaborated with Gunn on the DC Extended Universe projects The Suicide Squad (2021) and Peacemaker (2022).[7] The following month, Will Forte and Lana Condor would be added to the cast, with Forte starring as Coyote's lawyer.[8]

In November 2022, Foghorn Leghorn, Granny, Sylvester the Cat and Tweety were confirmed to be in the film.[9][10] In December 2022, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam were also confirmed to be in the film.[11][12] In January 2023, Porky Pig was confirmed to be in the film.[13] Later that month, Will Forte teased that many Looney Tunes characters besides Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner will appear in the film.[2]


Principal photography commenced on April 1, 2022, with cinematographer Brandon Trost.[14] Filming took place in Albuquerque, New Mexico,[15] as it is an iconic setting referenced in numerous Looney Tunes cartoons.[16] Filming wrapped on May 28, 2022.[17]
