The nostalgia wave is going to continue and the Flintstones are next in line for a reboot. This animated recreation of the classic 1960’s cartoon series will also be a different take on the classic family dynamic.
The Wrap reports that Elizabeth Banks is set to star in the Flintstones reboot series as an adult Pebbles, Fred and Wilma Flintstones’ baby girl all grown up. The project, currently in development at FOX, will feature Pebbles taking off on her own.
The Stone Age is set to give way to the Bronze Age in this series as well. So, it’s historical, in a manner of speaking. The residents of Bedrock will discover this is a bit of a struggle as the eras pass before them.
Lindsay Kerns is on the film to pen the pilot script for the potential series, produced by Banks. We will have to see if this series gets picked up, but it is a very interesting concept.
