Zemeckis: This is Your Wake Up Call
It would appear that there is a God after all. Look like I owe that crazy religious fanatic on the corner of Broad and 3rd a Coke. Join me in rejoicing as we all celebrate the following news:
Disney has dropped all plans for the Robert Zemeckis mo-cap remake of Yellow Submarine. While I would like to think that this is because somebody at Disney sent out a memo that said, “Wait a minute, guys. I just realized that the whole thing is fucking retarded”, the truth is more likely the fact that Mars Needs Moms, which Zemeckis produced, is on it’s way to being one of the biggest bombs in recent Disney history.
Bob Zemeckis, let this be your wake up call. We all miss your live action films. You were brilliant. This whole mo-cap things is, quite frankly, somewhat scary. Even if it is the wave of the future, as you’ve said time and time again, I don’t think we’re ready for it. Hell, most of us still haven’t come around to George Lucus’ new Star Wars additions, and those started in the ’90’s. So, do us all a favor and relax, take some time away from the cruel online blog folks (CE! excluded, of course! We’re your one stop source for sexy entertainment news!), and start thinking about that next live-action film, or series, that we all know you have saved up in that cute noggin’ of yours.
Have a great weekend.
