George Lopez to voice Speedy Gonzales

Speedy GonzalesNew Line Cinemas is making a live action movie based on Warner Bros'. Speedy Gonzales cartoons, with Speedy as a computer generated character voiced by George Lopez.  The producers intend to avoid the racial stereotypes of the original cartoons.  The premise is that young Speedy is too fast for his family's business, and he sets off looking for an occupation where his speed is an asset, eventually meeting up with a jumpy race car driver.
