Warner Bros.’ decision to shelve the movie, which was nearing completion, has infuriated and disappointed the composer and director of the animated picture “Coyote Vs. Acme.” Dave Green, the film’s director, and Steven Price, the composer of the music, attacked the studio on social media for their “bizarre anti-art studio financial shenanigans” and “lack of respect” for the artists and the public.

A spin-off of the Looney Tunes series, “Coyote Vs. Acme” included the beloved character Wile E. Coyote and his never-ending hunt for the Road Runner. The goal of the movie was to go into the history of the coyote and his association with the Acme Corporation, who provided him with a variety of devices and tools that frequently malfunctioned. James Corden, Ken Jeong, Rashida Jones, and John Cena provided the voices in the movie.

Price, who received an Oscar for his “Gravity” score, announced that he had completed recording the movie’s soundtrack at London’s Abbey Road Studios with a 90-piece orchestra and that the movie was “a joyous, hilarious, beautiful piece of work” of which he was “immensely proud.” He charged that Warners was “throwing away” the movie and “wasting” the years-long labor of hundreds of artists on it.

The director of “Earth to Echo” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows,” Green, expressed his shock at the cancelation, saying he had put his “heart and soul” into the project. Declaring it to be “a love letter to animation, to Looney Tunes, to Wile E. Coyote, to comedy, to cinema,” he expressed his hope that the movie will eventually be released.

Warners’ decision to cancel “Coyote Vs. Acme” is unknown, but some reports speculate that the studio’s intention to concentrate on its HBO Max streaming service and the underwhelming box office performance of “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” which also included Looney Tunes characters, may have played a role.

Originally slated for release on July 21, 2023, the picture was postponed until June 9, 2024, and ultimately canceled.
