'Coyote vs. Acme' screenwriter Samy Burch says that the shelved film could still be released.

The live-action/animated hybrid movie was controversially axed by Warner Bros. last November but the scribe has revealed that talks are still "ongoing" as to whether audiences will get the chance to see the movie.

Speaking to IndieWire, Samy said: "As far as I know it's ongoing. I think we're all pretty heartbroken about it. We hope it will somehow find its home and not end up stuck in a vault for the rest of time. That would be a great resolution."

She continued: "I know that they have been screening places and I think they still are.

"I hope that I'm allowed to say that. I'm going completely rogue here. It's just the best group of people. Dave Green, who directed it, I just love so much. Will Forte is amazing in the movie. I've seen the final cut of the completed film and I'm very proud of it."

Forte had been set to play Wile E. Coyote's lawyer in the movie featuring the Looney Tunes characters and recently took to social media to express his disappointment at the decision made by Warner Bros.

He posted on the social media platform X: "Even when a movie tests very well (like ours), there's no guarantee that it's gonna be a hit. And at the end of the day, the people who paid for the movie can obviously do whatever they want with it.

"It doesn't mean I have to like it. Or agree with it. And it doesn't mean that this movie is anything less than magnificent. You would be so proud of it – a movie that should be seen, but won't.

"Please know that all the years and years of hard work and dedication and love that you put into this movie shows in every frame. That's all folks."
