Yogi Bear Has A Director

Eric Brevig has come on to direct Warner Bros.' feature take on the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon Yogi Bear, which will be produced as a 3-D project THR reports.

Brevig, a longtime visual effects supervisor whose credits include The Day After Tomorrow and Men in Black, directed Warners and Walden's Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, who executive produced "That '70s Show," are writing the screenplay for Yogi Bear, which will offer a new take on the half-century-old title character and his sidekick Boo Boo, who get into a series of misadventures in Jellystone Park.
