Hollywood Is Just Seeing If We're Paying Attention

News of this movie hit the web on Thursday. I didn't want to believe the story, so I didn't write anything about it. But it's been five days and I haven't seen anyone come forward to refute this information, so let's gripe, shall we?

According to Pajiba, Hollywood and Mattel are joining forces to bring the big screen adaptation of the literary classic, Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, to a theater near you. Yes, you read that correctly. They're turning another freaking game into a movie.

But it gets worse: actual TALENT is rumored to be attached to this project. The director? Wolfgang Peterson, the director who brought us Das Boot, The NeverEnding Story, In The Line Of Fire, The Perfect Storm (Shut up! I liked this movie), and others.

But if this isn't just some big joke and Hollywood actually makes this movie, at least it can be done cheaply. All you'll need is two young actors to control the robots, a mother to tell the kids "It's time for lunch," and some CGI robots.

I know why Hollywood's doing this. It practically writes itself!
