Will Forte Protests Warner Bros. For Canceling ‘Coyote vs Acme’: ‘I F—king Hate This’

It seems ‘Coyote vs. Acme’ won’t be hitting theaters as anticipated, much to the dismay of its lead.

Despite expectation, ‘Coyote vs. Acme’ release has been scrapped, with Will Forte confirming the disappointing news via a social media post last Thursday, highlighting the project’s uncertain future. He addressed the cast and crew of the film saying:

“I know that a lot of you haven’t gotten a chance to see our movie. And sadly, it’s looking like you never will. When I first heard that our movie was getting ‘deleted,’ I hadn’t seen it yet.”

The Movie Is Great, The Actor Says

The film was originally scheduled for release last July but was pulled from the calendar in November, as reported by Deadline. This move was part of a broader trend which sees studios cancelling projects for tax breaks.

Not having seen the final product until after Warner Bros.’ decision, Forte shared:

“So, I was thinking what everyone else must have been thinking: this thing must be a hunk of junk. But then I saw it. And it’s incredible.”

Hollywood Business Caused The Cancellation

‘Coyote vs. Acme’ promised to deliver a fresh take on the timeless feud between Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner, focusing on Coyote’s legal battle against the Acme Corporation for their faulty products.

Forte described the film as ‘super funny,’ ‘visually stunning,’ and ‘emotionally resonant.’ Commenting on the decision to cancel the project despite its quality, the actor went on:

“Look, when it comes to Hollywood business stuff, I don’t know s**t about s**t. Even when a movie tests very well (like ours), there’s no guarantee that it’s gonna be a hit.”

Forte ‘Hates’ The Decision

Even with positive reactions from test screenings and potential interest from platforms like Netflix, Amazon, and Paramount, Warner Bros. decided against releasing the film.

The move has led to widespread criticism, with Forte openly blasting the studio’s decision to end the project abruptly:

“And at the end of the day, the people who paid for this movie can obviously do whatever they want with it. It doesn’t mean I have to like it (I f**king hate it). Or agree with it. And it doesn’t mean that this movie is anything less than magnificent.”

While ‘Coyote vs. Acme’ might not see the light of day, Will Forte remains active in the industry with other projects, including voice roles in Netflix’s ‘Thelma The Unicorn’ and Pixar’s ‘Win Or Lose.’
