Comments on this pledge

  • Actually, I would like to see him on the side of the freeway. It would be even better if he handcuffed himself to a railing and had a sign that said, "Down with this sort of thing." You know you all would be there giggling at the reference to "Father Ted" and taking pictures. ;)

  • Oh please no! You really do have no life!

    I'm terribly sorry too.

  • Of course, what Neil probably isn't telling us is that the whole notion of rabbits/chocolate factory/caper was taken from an actual rejected adaptation of Sandman. And before you laugh, consider that at least one I Am Legend script would have been better had all the vampires been rabbits and Neville worked as the head of a chocolate factory. So it can really get that bad.
  • I definitely won't do it. Here's hoping won't either.

  • There is no chance that I will attempt to do this at all, ever. I could on the other hand, be talked into creating a soundtrack from old Raffi, Sharon, Lois and Bram and Mini Pops albums, as background music for said film, but only if the rabbits all agree.

  • I most definitely promise not to do this. I think an adaptation involving squirrels in a disaster movie in a toffee factory would be truer to the original book, anyway.

  • Meredith: Now you're making me want to see an Irwin Allen/Watership Down mashup. Oh well. I'm not sleepin' tonight.
  • Although it pains me to abandon my in-progress adaptation so near to completion, I have committed to do so. I will call Joel Schumacher shortly to break the news.
  • Tweak it a bit and sell it as a Disney version of Greg Bear's Blood Music. Seriously, like they would know the difference.
