There truly is nothing sacred out there. And by sacred, I actually mean there’s nothing out there so ridiculous and nonsensical that it can’t make a movie. Sony proved this recently with the garbage release of The Emoji Movie, pretty much confirming that not EVERYTHING needed to make it to the silver screen just to make a pretty penny (then again, The Emoji Movie was profitable, so what the hell do we know?).
Now, it looks like we’re getting another oddball project in the form of Funko! You know, Funko, right? Those creators of those SD-headed toys that are inspired by some of your favorite geek properties? Yeah, it looks like that’s getting turned into a film in the very near future. This report came from Super Bro Movies and was later corroborated by /Film.
So what will this movie be about? Well, we don’t know a lot about the plot, but the film is said to “center around Wonder Woman, the Care Bears, Hellboy, Deadpool, Hello Kitty, Harley Quinn, Darth Vader, and My Little Pony.” So yeah, kinda like the LEGO Movie films, this looks to potentially be another pop culture mash-up. Production is expected to begin sometime later this year.
You know, I truly do hate the idea of this movie, but if there is something that The LEGO Movie proved, it’s that even the worst ideas can make great films. Let’s just hope they’ll be carrying over some of that DNA and leaving behind everything else. On the plus side, it looks like, due to licensing laws, this film could allow a mild Marvel/DC crossover, which I’m a fan of.
