Tentatively titled Skate Jam, the film was supposed to continue the revival of the Looney Tunes franchise that started with Michael Jordan‘s iconic live-action/animated sports comedy movie. But before any filming began, Warner released Looney Tunes: Back in Action starring Brendan Fraser. Unfortunately, Back in Action bombed at the box office, forcing Warner to cancel all plans for Skate Jam and re-evaluate its direction.

In case you missed it, Aquaman is now DC Extended Universe’s highest-grossing movie.
in 2003, I was requested to meet with Warner Brothers about doing a film tentatively titled “Skate Jam.” They were bringing back Looney Tunes with “Back In Action” & then wanted to start on my project immediately. A week later Back In Action bombed & Skate Jam was shelved forever pic.twitter.com/9giKzBnlWH
