Smarter than the average remake?

Hollywood is at it again, trying to force a Saturday morning children's program into a big-screen hit. (Worked great with Land of the Lost, didn't it?) The latest will be a real bear. Warner Bros. is planning a live-action/computer-animated Yogi Bear. Hmmm, that could be good — depending on the voices. According to Variety, the first choices are Dan Aykroyd as Yogi and Justin Timberlake as his trusty sidekick. "Heeeey, Boo Boo. This sounds tastier than that pic-a-nic basket!" Anna Faris (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs) also is in talks to play a documentary filmmaker visiting "Jellystone Park." As long as Will Ferrell doesn't show up as Ranger Smith, we think Hollywood might be back on the right track again.
