YABBA DABBA DAN! Aykroyd, Faris and Timberlake Circling S3D Jellystone Project

Jim here. Looks like Dan Aykroyd, Anna Faris and Justin Timberlake all have something in common - YOGI BEAR. Nothing is confirmed yet, but that didn't stop THR from reporting it so it looks fairly solid. Eric Brevig (JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH) is directing as we posted back in February.

From THR: Faris will play a nature documentarian who follows the antics of a bear in fictional Jellystone Park. Aykroyd will voice Yogi, and Timberlake could end up lending his pipes for Yogi's constant companion, Boo Boo.

Jon Berg is overseeing for the studio, which hopes to get "Yogi" under way in New Zealand in December. Brad Copeland penned the current script with Joshua Sternin and Jeff Ventimilia writing the original draft.

Still appears to be a live action/CG hybrid project! Should be cool.
