Coyote vs. Acme is an American live-action/animated film based off the character of Wile E. Coyote and Acme from the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies theatrical shorts, and the 1990 magazine article of the same name originally published in The New Yorker by Ian Fraizer. Produced by Warner Bros. Pictures Animation, the film was directed by Dave Green, from a screenplay written by Samy Burch, and a story by Burch, James Gunn (who also served as a producer), and Jeremy Slater. The film's cast was John Cena, Will Forte, Lana Condor, and the voice of Eric Bauza.
In November 2023, it was announced that the film was shelved and would not be released due to a $30 million tax write-down, the third Warner Bros. film under Warner Bros. Discovery management to have this fate after Batgirl and Scoob! Holiday Haunt. However, the studio reversed their decision a few days later following backlash from the filmmakers, and have the option to shop the film to other distributors.
The film will focus on Wile E. Coyote as he takes ACME to court, following various failed attempts to catch the Road Runner.
