Elizabeth Banks onboard The Flintstones reboot

Actor-director Elizabeth Banks is set to voice act and executive produce a reboot of the classic sitcom, The Flintstones. 

On Tuesday, Fox Network announced that a reboot of the sitcom, which will be titled, The Bedrock, will pick up the story 20 years later. 

The original series focused on the exploits of Fred and Wilma Flintstone, their daughter, Pebbles, their pet, Dino, and their neighbors Barney and Betty Rubble, along with son Bamm-Bamm. The series ran for six seasons.

In the reboot, Fred is about to retire and his now-twenty-something daughter, Pebbles (voiced by Banks), is about to begin her career. "As the Stone Age gives way to a shiny and enlightened new Bronze Age, the residents of Bedrock will find this evolution harder than a swing from Bamm-Bamm's club," reads the logline. 

"Long before the Simpsons and Springfield, the Griffins and Quahog or even when the Belchers started serving burgers on Ocean Avenue, there were the Flintstones and Bedrock," said Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn in a statement. 

"Their 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."   

The script will be written by Lindsay Kerns, who will also serve as an executive producer.
