Before 'Iron Man' there was 'The Shaggy Dog'. Thank God for 'Iron Man'.
Columbia Pictures have picked up the rights to The Game author Neil Strauss's book Emergency!: This Book Will Save Your Life. Robert Downey Jr. is on board to produce and possibly star in the film version that will also save your life.
The book details the three years that Strauss spent in the West Indies, educating himself to be able to handle any disaster situation. Everything from terror attacks to earthquakes to when best pal Mystery misplaces his furry top hat. I don't know why he'd have to travel to the West Indies for that. A few weeks with Ted Nugent should have been all he needed. Allan Loeb is writing the screenplay, which makes perfect sense. Who better to save your life than the guy who gets laid using magic tricks, the guy who wrote Kevin James's fart jokes, and the guy who co-starred with Tim Allen in The Shaggy Dog?
