Note: Please do not add "Christopher Lee died on June 7, 2015" or "Jake Short is now told old to play Larson". This film was in development before the death of Christopher Lee and before Jake Short grew up.

On July 29, 2008, Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment announced plans for a live action/computer-animated film based on the famous character Marvin the Martian from the Looney Tunes franchise. It was initially scheduled for an October 7, 2011, release, but the movie was later taken off the schedule and no word on it has been heard since.

Plot

The film would have involved Marvin trying to destroy the Earth during Christmas by becoming a competitor of Santa Claus' but being prevented from destroying the Earth when Santa wraps him inside a gift box. Alcon compared the project to other films such as Racing Stripes and My Dog Skip.

Cast

  • Mike Myers as Marvin the Martian
  • Christopher Lee as Santa Claus
  • Jake Short as Larson

Why It Was Cancelled
