Thanks to the wonderful talent of my friend Bryan from MixEffect.com, I have a brand new open animation!
Bryan created my very first animation for Manny the Movie Guy, and now, he gives me a whole new makeover!
It's fun, sharp, and colorful, and definitely captures my spirit

"Star Trek" and "Transformers" franchise writers Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci are set to produce a film about...the View-Master! Yeah, you heard me right. A film about the click, click View-Master!
"Fringe" writer Brad Caleb Kane has been set to work on the script based on the funky toy that I used to own back in the day. I loved my View-Master but I'm still scratching my head on how they're going to incorporate this into a big movie adaptation.
DreamWorks had no comment about the project right now, but the studio is in talks to acquire the feature rights from Mattel, which owned the View-Master brand since 1997.
Will the movie be in 3-D? Stay tuned...but this is what we know. Kane posted in Twitter that "View-Master" will be very similar to the mood and feel of 1980s flicks such as "The Goonies" and "Young Sherlock."
Hhhhhmmmmm, a little treasure hunting in the plot maybe?

Jeremy Garelick, the uncredited writer of "The Hangover" (he helped with the rewrite), is going to rewrite and direct "Baywatch," based on the TV show about lifeguards glistening under the hot California sun
Get this, DreamWorks paid seven figures (!!!) for the remake rights in 2005. The studio believes this has a potential to be a huge franchise! And now, they hired Garelick to put a funny spin to the proposed film.
Garelick tells Variety that "It felt like the template to do a movie that was similar to 'Stripes' and 'Police Academy,' the comedies I loved growing up."
He further revealed, "Rather than trying to pitch the tone, I figured it would be easier to write the first act to convey who these characters were."
Well great! At least Garelick is focusing on character development, instead of just jiggling bods! Apparently, the script will now focus on two unlikely lifeguard candidates.

Shooting is currently underway for "Beastly," an adaptation of Alex Finn's fantasy novel.
Peter Krause ("Six Feet Under") has joined Mary-Kate Olsen, Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens in the film.
(For more about "Beastly" click here)
"Beastly" is a retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" and Krause will star as the father of Pettyfer who plays a cruel joke on Olsen, a classmate who's also a witch! I think that's perfect casting

"T.J. Hooker" will get the movie makeover as an action comedy!
The hit TV show from the 80s gets its movie adaptation from producers David Foster, Ryan Heppe, and series creator Rick Husky.
Chuck Russell, the guy who gave us "The Scorpion King" and "The Mask" is negotiating to direct.
The film version will focus on the relationship between our hero, T.J., and his dad. But I don't know how the writing team of Brent Maddock and S.S. Wilson will make the characters and the plot interesting. The writing duo gave us "Wild Wild West" (I know, not a good sign) and many "Tremors" films (yeah, definitely not a good sign!).
No word yet on the cast, or whether William Shatner, the original Sgt. Thomas J. 'T.J.' Hooker, will make a cameo. What about series originals Adrian Zmed and Heather Locklear?
For now, let's take a look back at the original "T.J. Hooker" season 1 opening.
