Todd Strauss-Schulson to Direct Rascal Raccoon’s Raging Revenge

Todd Strauss-Schulson, who made his big screen directing debut last year with A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, is slated to direct an adaptation of Oni Press’ Rascal Raccoon’s Raging Revenge, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.

The comic, from creators Brendan Hay and Justin Wagner, was released in late 2011 and is officially described as follows:

Welcome to Toonie Terrace, home of the fun-loving Toonies and their jealous, bitter rivals, the Meanies. For all their shenanigans, no Meanie has ever murdered a Toonie… until now. After thousands of painful failed attempts, Rascal Raccoon has finally killed his arch-nemesis, the charming and adorable Jumpin’ Jackalope. Rascal is overjoyed, but there’s one problem: what does he do now? With nothing left to obsess over, Rascal’s life falls apart. Fortunately, he soon finds a new target for his anger: the animator who created him!

Matt Fogel (Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son) is attached to provide the screenplay for the project, which is planned to merge CGI and live-action.
