View-Master movie?

07.03.2009

View Master Ok, what the fuck? Is Hollywood just fucking with us now? Fringe co-producer Brad Kane recently tweeted that after he's finished scripting the sci fi actioner UPRISING for Wolfgang Petersen, he's starting work on a movie based on the View-Master toy, which he hopes will be "like the old 80's Amblin movies: Goonies, Young Sherlock…In that vein." Which again begs the question "what the fuck?!?. Are Hollywood execs just pointing at objects at random now and commissioning scripts? Is that what pitch meetings have come to now? Do writers just take a random toy into a meeting, slam it down on the table and say "BAM!"? Or the reverse happens with execs taking a toy to a writer's house and doing the same? Just because TRANSFORMERS worked doesn't mean that every movie based on a toy will make 200 million in five days. This shit's getting out of hand.

Lite Brite: The story of Benjamin Franklin

A horror movie about an alligator that spits out golf balls, killing its prey. We shall call it Gator Golf: The Movie.

The new Yahtzee Zombies movie too. Can't wait for that.

not surprised

this is nothing new. hollywood has always latched on to a concept that has worked and ran with it right into the crapper. Gremlins to Critters to Ghoolies. Trading Places to Vice Versa to Like Father Like Son.

Just make sure you're ready for a Wax Lips movie soon.

Just because it's so ridiculous

I remember when I had the View-Master. One of them had clips from Disney's Snow White.

Granted, this thing is just a twit (how does Twitter become tweet?), so it's probably nothing. But this is the sort of thing, if somebody goes on the record about it, I wanna hear what the story is else I'm gonna hope they get committed real soon.
