    I just read at Variety.com that Brett Ratner's production company will be creating a Hong Kong Phooey feature for WB.
    And here I thought that this ONE cartoon would remain mercifully ignored by the Hollywood Machine. Sigh.

    When is Sarah Michelle Gellar going to realize her potential?

    A few years ago, I saw her as a Lillian Gish for the 21st century. Sigh...

    Falling in love with Freddie Prinze Jr. might turn out to be her tragic flaw [​IMG] I hope she does eventually move into better film roles, though, as she's extremely talented.

    I refuse to accept that Hong Kong Phooey can exist without the voice of Scatman Crothers. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Halt production now!

    So we should expect to see an announcement any day for a movie based on that shark that says, "Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk"?

    Well, keeping in mind that I was a wee tyke at the time, I kinda dug Hong Kong Phooey when it was on the air. But, as fun as a movie version sounds, I think it's best left as a childhood memory. Leave it alone, Rattner!
    On second thought, how about an update of Electro-Woman* and Dyna-Girl*? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    When the live-action Smurfs hit the big screen I will officially give up on the major studios.
