Fox Carries On With Elizabeth Bank's 'Flintstones' Sequel: 'Bedrock'

Fox Carries On With Elizabeth Bank's 'Flintstones' Sequel: 'Bedrock'

After a long-awaited two years, Fox has announced Elizabeth Banks' 'Bedrock' is in the works, a sequel of the iconic animation 'The Flintstones.'

Bedrock follows the Flintstones during the transition to the Bronze Age. Elizabeth Banks is set to star in and executive produce the series.

Two Years in the Making

Announced two years ago, Bedrock is set to star Elizabeth Banks who will also executive produce the series. Banks' production company Brownstone will be working in collaboration with both Warner Bros. Animation and Fox, who ended production on another Flintstones (1960-1966) reboot in the past.

Set 20 Years After OG Series

Much like The CW's interpretation of the Powerpuff Girls, Bedrock will focus on Pebbles Flintstone 20 years after the end of the series during the transition from Stone to Bronze Age.

The Women Behind the Series

Writer on DC Super Hero Girls (2019-) and Cleopatra in Space (2019-) Lindsay Kerns will be writing the series pilot script.

Fox Entertainment President Michael Thorn spoke of the new series, as well as Kerns and Banks' involvement stating,

"[The Flintstones] imprint on the animation universe is undeniable and the idea of adapting it for today's audience is a challenge we here at Fox are very much looking forward to taking on with Warner Bros., Elizabeth and Lindsay. No pressure whatsoever, really."

Known for her direction of Charlie's Angels (2019) and Pitch Perfect 2 (2015), as well as her acting chops in The Hunger Games films (2012-2015) and Love & Mercy (2014), there's no doubt that Elizabeth Banks is a force to be reckoned with and we can't wait to see what she does with this sequel.

Fox's Bedrock has no official release date at the moment.
