News today about the live action Jetsons film that has been brewing for some time. We get the news and the following excerpt from the moviehole:
Latino Review reports that the film may have jumped ahead a few spots – – – with the king of all things effectsy, Robert Rodriguez (“Sin City”) possibly signing on to direct the thing. According to the site, Rodriguez will be doing the film sooner-rather-than-later too – possibly even hoping on board ‘that crazy thing’ before “Sin City 2” gets underway.
After the risky and unsuccessful “Grindhouse” Rodriguez is going to be looking for something a little safer – something that’s destined to make money – so it’s probable that he would be chasing something like this.
Rodriguez enjoys doing children’s movies he may be a good fit for The Jetsons. I think Tim Burton would do a wicked job if he employed the 50’s styled sci-fi elements that were so kick ass in Mars Attacks. But I am a Tim Burton fan and want him to do as much as possible.
Rodriguez is still considering the job so it is not yet concrete. I love his over the top approach to action films, but am wondering if this will be a good outlet for him. Time will tell. International friends would you like to see Rodriguez direct the Jetsons? If not, who would you prefer?
