Just forget the words and sing along

Tuesday, September 14, 2004

School's back in. Feeling really busy right now. Which is OK. After a few weeks, once the routine is established, I'm sure it'll be just fine. Anyway, some movie news bits I've gotta share:

- The Canadian hit Trailer Park Boys is heading for the big screen. Ivan Reitman, the man responsible for such comedic hits as Ghostbusters, Twins and Junior will be producing. I'm not a big fan of Trailer Park Boys. It's so much like life in Entwistle that I see how sad it really is.

- Paramount Pictures just picked up the movie rights to Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Now this I'm curious about. Archie Comics originally created the character back in the 1960s and had some success. Then, Sabrina kind of faded away until the 1990s, when it was turned into a sitcom. Then, Archie re-made and re-launched the comic to be more like the sitcom. So then, will this movie be a roundabout movie version of the sitcom? Time will tell.

And the big news:

The movie version of The Dukes of Hazzard is coming!

Teen star Sean William Scott, who was in the American Pie movies, will be Bo. Johnny Knoxville, who was MTV's Jackass, will be playing Luke. And the big announcement today was that pop singer and reality TV star Jessica Simpson will be Daisy. Jay Chanderhasker, director of those "Broken Lizard" movies, is directing.

What's with all the comedy actors? Well, yes, just like the movie version of Starsky and Hutch, this is going to be a big self-parody.

Next Issue...School's In
