Following last week’s Asteroids movie announcement, The Hollywood Reporter is either messing with our heads in an elaborate practical joke, or Hollywood has finally reached the bottom of the barrel.Â Deamworks has acquired the film rights to the View-Master toy from Mattel and is asking the writers behind the new Transformers movie to pen the script.
Story specifics are being kept under wraps, though Kane, who tweeted his involvement during the holiday weekend, said, “It’ll be like the old ’80s Amblin movies: ‘Goonies,’ ‘Young Sherlock’ … in that vein.” That post has been taken down. Amblin-style movies has been the modus operandi of the Kurtzman-Orci banner.
Can I get a collective W. T. F. ?
Seriously, Hollywood, if you are really this desperate for a new movie idea, please contact me about my Kung-Fu Zombie Western. I work cheap, and the worst that will happen is some website that no one cares about will utter a collective WTF? when they read the reports you dropped $5 million on my concept and story idea.
