We’ve got a 60-second teaser for Peanuts, the Charlie Brown-centric film that will include all the anthropomorphic dogs, lesbians, dirt-covered children, and malevolent, vindictive girls that we grew to love in the comic strip.

It seems a little more spirited than the TV specials, which is a pretty easy feat, considering the characters in those ambled about as though they had a grapefruit-sized lithium suppository crammed inside them.

Other than that, expect perhaps a little attitude from Snoopy. I would also expect a Snoop Dogg cameo, but, then again, I’m always expecting a Snoop Dogg cameo. I was surprised I didn’t get one in Blackfish.

Paul Feig To Stop Directing Raunchy Women For A Second To Produce A ‘Peanuts’ Movie http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/paul-feig-to-stop-directing-raunchy-women-for-a-second-to-produce-a-peanuts-movie/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/paul-feig-to-stop-directing-raunchy-women-for-a-second-to-produce-a-peanuts-movie/#comments Thu, 24 Oct 2013 14:37:20 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=257686 As Charlie Brown would say, "F*ck yeah, b*ll l*ckers!"

Paul Feig recently disclosed that he was a lifelong Peanuts fan, which is a good thing, because that announcement came with the announcement that he will be producing the new Peanuts live-action film that will star (with help of some heavy prosthetics and makeup work):

  • Jack Black as Charlie Brown
  • Susan Sarandon as the mumbling teacher
  • Linda Cardellini as Lucy
  • Michael Cera as Linus
  • Donald Glover as a new Peanuts character “Sweet Lou”

Ok. None of those casting revelations are true. In fact, the film is going to be animated. But that was fun, wasn’t it?

But, in case the crippling ennui and existential dread of your own life isn’t compelling enough, you’ll get the opportunity to see disillusioned, defeated toddlers mope their way through life in cartoon form in about two years.

My two favorite things from this video: Linus standing in for Doug Stanhope, and Pig Pen standing in for Rick Shapiro. (Laughing Squid)

‘The Technology Is Where We Need It’ To Greenlight A ‘Peanuts’ Film http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/the-technology-is-where-we-need-it-to-greenlight-a-peanuts-film/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/the-technology-is-where-we-need-it-to-greenlight-a-peanuts-film/#comments Tue, 09 Oct 2012 19:22:09 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=251356 I can't wait to hear Skrillex' version of "Linus and Lucy."

I had no idea that the barrier to a Peanuts film had been insufficient movie-making technology, but I guess all that’s moot now, as Charles Schulz’s son Craig has informed the world that we’re where we need to be, technologically, to get the ball rolling on a feature film adaptation of the beloved comic strip.

And roll that ball will.

On November 25, 2015, Charlie, Lucy, Schroeder, Pigpen, Peppermint Patty, Woodstock, Snoopy, and the black kid (Roosevelt?) will be finding their way back into theaters, ushered across screens via technology so bleeding edge that hemophiliacs need not apply.

Does this mean that the film will be in 3-D, possibly with some sort of mechanism that allows us to smell the top of Charlie Brown’s head as his curly hairs dance and tickle the underside of our noses, causing audiences to get more sexually stimulated than we ever thought possible by a man with a giant, giant head.
