Peanuts movie coming in 2015 – Snoopy refuses to come out of his dog house to participate
Because Hollywood is creatively bankrupt and incapable of coming up with any new ideas, a new Peanuts movie has been announced with a release date of 2015. Besides the fact that I feel the iconic Peanuts cartoons are best left in the time and place from which they originated (which is a big part of their charm – and, of course, the Vince Giraldi soundtrack), this one quote has me very nervous:
"We have been working on this project for years," Craig Schulz, president of Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, said in a statement. "We finally felt the time was right and the technology is where we need it to be to create this film."
I hope Craig was extremely high when he issued this statement. "… the technologyis where we need it to be to create this film." What?!? It’s fucking Charlie Brown – you’re not making a Star Wars prequel! Just draw the fucker! Oh, who am I kidding? We all know it’s going to be digitally animated. Or, screw that – just go live action and bring in the guy from Kill Bill part 1 that The Crazy 88s called Charlie Brown to play the starring roll.
