Mike Myers will voice lovable skunk PepÃ© Le Pew in a new live-action flick from Warner Bros. Pictures!
“By the end of the day, I was PepÃ© Le Pew,” Myers once joked while playing Fat Bastard in the Austin Powers franchise.
Talk about art imitating life.
Myers has signed on to voice the classic Looney Tunes character in a live-action/CGI feature film currently in pre-production, New York Magazine’s Vulture Column said Thursday. PepÃ© and his love interest Penelope Pussycat will be created with the help of digital imagery, while the rest of the Warner Bros film will be live-action.
PepÃ© first premiered in a cartoon short back in 1945, but this is the first time that the character is being adapted for the big screen.
