Onion: The Movie

12.18.2003

For my money (actually it's free so it's not any of my money) there's nothing funnier on the internet than The Onion. Well maybe those pictures of JoBlo in women's underwear but the Onion is pretty damn funny too. They're the fake newspaper with headlines like "Hamburglar Urges Senate Subcommittee To 'Robble Robble Robble'" and the banner headline "Holy Fucking Shit!" after 9/11. Hollywood has been trying to get these guys to do a movie for some time and Miramax even optioned a few of their stories to adapt into films. But the first ever Onion feature film began filming on Monday for Fox Searchlight. The film is described as a "sketch comedy" feature written by Onion chiefs Robert Siegel and Todd Hanson. The untitled project will be directed by Mike Maguire and Tom Kuntz, best known for their work directing commercials for Budweiser's "Real Men of Genius" campaign and Volkswagen. We're doing some digging now to try and found out some more about this project which, to be honest, snuck up on me. I hadn't heard anything about this really. So until I find out more about the cast and plot, read this Onion about very special forces sent to the Middle East or this one about a crazy 8-pound man.
