Warner Bros. and World Wrestling Entertainment are teaming up to co-produce a Flintstones animated movie to be released in early 2015.

Fred, Barney and the whole Bedrock gang join up with Vince McMagma, and WWE Superstars and Divas including John Cenastone and CM Punkrock as part of the very first WWE main event.

“WWE is family-friendly entertainment, so partnering with Warner Bros. on a Flintstones/WWE project was a natural extension of our Scooby Doo deal,” said Michael Luisi, President, WWE Studios.

“This new, animated feature allows us to showcase our brand with young fans and loyal Flintstones enthusiasts alike.”

Jeff Brown, Executive Vice President of TV at Warner Home Video, added:

“Warner Bros. is thrilled to continue our partnership with WWE Studios as we begin production of the latest Flintstones animated feature.

“Our recent production collaborations have proven successful and we have the utmost confidence that the latest tag team between the WWE Superstars and The Flintstones will deliver the same results.”

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will handle worldwide distribution on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download. The film will be co-produced by Warner Bros. Animation and WWE Studios.

WWE will utilize its extensive global reach through its television (WWE Raw, WWE Smackdown) and digital media (WWE.com, WWE App for iPad) to market the release of the film.
