Marmaduke voices

09.29.2009

Maemarduke strip. I guess. I wouldn't know.

There's a Marmaduke movie in the works? Really? No kidding? Wow, that's something. What is a Marmaduke anyway? I gather that it's a long-running comic strip but no newspaper in my neck o' the woods ever printed that one. Is he a second cousin to Hagar the Horrible? Hey, there's a cool idea for a movie!

Alright, so this Marmaduke thing is apparently going to be live-action mixed with CG, like SCOOBY-DOO and G-FORCE - now there's a couple of reassuring references. AND the live-action portion is already done filming, would you look at that? Judy Greer and Lee Pace apparently play owners to the titular...what is it again? Oh, right, a dog. And a Great Dane you say? How f*ckin original!

Anyway, the CG characters just got themselves some voices in Ron Perlman - Hellboy would kick your sorry ass if he knew-, Jeremy Piven, Steve Coogan, that McLovin kid and Fergie. The singing one.

The film comes out on June 4 next year. I got a marker if anybody needs to cross that date on their calendar.

With the current trend of grounding movies in the real world (like Batman) I hope the include scenes of Marmaduke licking his balls and pinching off a load on the front lawn and then getting some hot poodle actioon before raising a litter of mongrels.

Agree completely with Markuskorpela

As a kid, my brothers and I used to always read the Sunday comics, they have a big six page full color spread in the local paper. We'd always get a kick out of a few of them and then make fun of some of the others. You know the type, the painfully unfunny ones. The ones that haven't been funny for years, perhaps decades. The ones that it actually pains you whrn you realize that someone makes their living off of writing that crap. Marmaduke was the absolute worst of those. Seriusly, how is it

Seriusly, how is it that a Marmaduke movie's being made when there are literally dozens of other more popular comic strips who haven't been adapted to film yet?

I also agree with Silverload, if, for some unfathomable reason they are dead set on making this movie why the heck are they CGI'ing the dog? Aren't studios supposed to be all budget conscious these days? I mean Marmaduke isn't an alien or monster or anything, he's a freaking Great Dane, so why not ditch the CGI, shave $10 or $15 Million off the budget and have him be played be an actual great dane

"Oh, right, a dog. And a Great Dane you say? How f*ckin original!"

FYI Marmaduke created 1954, Scooby-Doo created 1969.

Interesting. Or not.

I think that Marmaduke is just about unfunniest cartoon ever. I can't remember even chuckling, ever, not once, while reading it. It was part of Garfield-magazine here in Finland, years ago.

Umm, Marmaduke didn't talk in the comic strip. Why is there even CGI in this?
