I kind of, sort of, like Comedy Central's "Drawn Together." It's a twisted cartoon spoofing MTV's "The Real World" and most pop culture icons like Betty Boop, Josie and the Pussycats, etc.
Well, Comedy Central just unveiled their plans to release a film based on the show that is slated to go direct-to-video sometime in 2010.
The plot will revolve around Foxxy, a mystery-solving musician in the vein of "Josie and the Pussycats," who suddenly realized that she and her fellow housemates can curse without being bleeped.
Is their show going to be canceled? Is it doomsday for the "Drawn Together" cast? Is their going to be more cartoon sex in the movie?
Comic-Con attendees will hear about the plan from Comedy Central tomorrow, Thursday.

Sam Worthington, the guy who stole "Terminator Salvation" from Christian Bale, is going to work for the house that "Twilight" built.
The actor will star in Summit Entertainment's remake of "The Candidate," a Danish film that is right up there with the best films based on John Grisham novels.
The story follows a lawyer who wakes up in a hotel room with a dead woman in the bathroom. Who is this woman, and why can't he remember her? As he fights to clear his name, he gets embroiled in a mystery connected to his father's mysterious death.
The script will be adapted by Beau Willimon.
That Sam Worthington is one busy dude. He'll be next seen in James Cameron's "Avatar" and the "Clash of the Titans" remake.

"Super-Size Me," the 2004 documentary about the evils of fast food, told from the point of view of director Morgan Spurlock, is getting ready to be super-sized into a comic book format!
The graphic novel will act as a companion piece to the documentary. It will feature bizarre stories about Americans' obsession with fast food.
Spurlock will write the stories and will feature script and art from established and up-and-coming artists.
"Super-Sized Me" the comic book, will be available next spring.
Some of the stories that will be featured is that of a fat man who died and was cremated and made the mortuary smell like French fries...yum!
Another one will be about a man who's so obsessed with McDonald's that he built a shrine in his garage featuring the fast food giant's food that never aged. Freaky!
Spurlock tells Variety, "As great as they were on paper, I think they'll be better told in a graphic-novel form."
"They're funny, they're gross, and hopefully they'll be informative too."
The narrator of the comic book will be a clown character called MC Super-Size Me designed in the same fashion as the Crypt Keeper from "Tales From the Crypt."

We know it’s just a matter of time before Hollywood makes a film featuring talking guinea pigs. In “G-Force,” not only do these furry creatures have the gift of gab, they can also kick major booty.
Uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the guy who gave us the “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “National Treasure” franchises, released his first live-action/animated/3-D hybrid. The result is an entertaining picture for kids that grown-ups will enjoy because of the 3-D technology. Read More...

Columbia Pictures is in early negotiations with Nicolas Cage to star as the gangster villain in "The Green Hornet."
Cameron Diaz is also negotiating to play a reporter and love interest.
Seth Rogen is attached to star as the masked crime fighter and Michel Gondry is set to direct from a script co-written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
There's still no word on who will play Kato after Stephen Chow left the project last week.
Apparently, this "Green Hornet" is going to stick to the radio roots of the material. If that's the case, is Cage going to play the mysterious "Mr. X," a criminal mastermind introduced in the episode "Walkout for Profit?" (Wikipedia)
And is Diaz going to play "Clicker" Binny, a female photographer for the fictional newspaper The Sentinel?
We'll soon find out, but for now, the film is still on track to shoot in the fall with a summer 2010 release date.
