From JoBlo's Movie Emporium : "Miramax Films has picked up the film rights to an animated movie based on the comic strip BLOOM COUNTY for their Dimension Films company to release. Artist and creator Berkeley Breathed will write and direct the film which will follow the misadventures of penguin Opus but its unknown if it will feature wacky Bill the Cat. Miramax picked the property up after viewing Breathed's first animated short EDWURD FUDWUPPER FIBBED BIG which features the voices of Frances McDormand and Haley Joel Osment." OK, I own ALL the Bloom County books and I still consider it the greatest comic strip ever. The fact that B.B. will be writing and directing may be cause for celebration indeed.
