But seriously, wasn't this supposed to be based on the musical (based on the documentary)? I see that Wikipedia says it's based on the documentary as well, but certainly...the musical grabbed a buttload of Tony noms, and just like the movie-to-musical-to-movie/musical path of The Producers and Hairspray and some others I don't feel like trying to recall, this seems like a no-brainer (for those Hollywood-types with no brains).

Staunch. That's my final word on the subject.


WTF is this world going to?????????


Yay! Now we can do Titicut Follies with Justin Timberlake and John Krasinski

Philip David Morgan

Ye goddess... we've come a long way from the promise of I've Heard the Mermaids Singing.

Albert and David Measles

Have you never heard of a docudrama?


this ruined my whole minute


Less a docudrama, more a melomentary.


Hey, what about the An American Family remake with Clay Aiken as the outed gay son, Lance Loud? Fahrenheit 9/11 with Will Ferrell? Let's not rush to judgment.

King Daevid MacKenzie

...after this, I fully expect some putz to make a "docudrama" out of THE ETERNAL JEW. Don't laugh, some asshole is probably lining up the financing as we post...

Derek in DC

"Less a docudrama, more a melomentary."

This is my new favorite quote. I will use it excessively and at inappropriate moments for at least a week.


A documentary in the same sense that The Office is a documentary- hybrid of reality style and conventional narrative. K is quite right.


They're actually doing a feature film based on the larger than life documentary The King Of Kong… *sigh*


Don't rush to judgment. As it happens, I read the script, and it was damn good. It's not just a remake of the documentary -- it's a much bigger story about the Beales that includes their days as society darlings, the making of the documentary, and what happened to them after the documentary was released. I'm genuinely looking forward to it.
