Sony Developing “Popeye” Remake – In 3D

I love Robert Altman’s Popeye film, so I’m not that excited at the prospect of Sony scraping the old idea barrel to come up with this. I can just picture the suits sitting around the “idea table” and coming up with “awesome 3D ideas!” Someone probably said that having a person repeatedly punch at the audience would be cool – and the idea of punching led to Popeye.

In any case, screenwriter Mike Jones (The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break) is currently in negotiations to adapt the movie, and according to him, he’s “an unabashed, lifelong Popeye fan, and introducing this squinty-eyed sailor to a new generation also means reintroducing him to those who, like me, grew up with him.”

We’ll see, Mr. Mike Jones and Sony. We’ll see.
