Yogi Bear Gets a Director

Eric Brevig to direct 3-D Yogi Bear feature

Eric Brevig has been confirmed as the director for  “Yogi Bear”, a hybrid of CG animation and live-action a la “Alvin and the Chipmunks”.

The project will also be 3-D. Yogi Bear marks Brevig’s second stab at 3-D filmmaking after directing last year’s Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia (That ’70s Show) are writing the screenplay for producers Donald De Line and Karen Rosenfelt.

The story promises to “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.”
