    Genndy Tartakovsky, well known for his cartoons, is directing a movie based on the famous cartoon Popeye.


    ...but in live-action, huh??

    I wonder how long before he quits to do something else and leaves everyone hanging like he does on ever other project of his.

    For one terrifying moment I thought we were getting a remake of this:

    If it's animated it'll probably be good....let's just wait and see if Hotel Transylvania is any good first.

    That was a fucking dreadful movie. Take all the fun of the cartoon and turn it into a depressing musical yawnfest.

    Let's hope that this new animated version remembers it's supposed to be entertaining.

    Man, i'd love it if the animation was like that, I love Pop-eye, I remember when I was 5 or 6 when we went on holiday to Malta we visited Pop-eye village, which was built as a set for the 1980 film (which was utterly dreadful though)

    Yeah the movie was awful. I did love the imaginative sets they used though.

    It's Genndy Tartacovsky doing Popeye. It would take a lot for that to be awful.

    They can't possibly buy more episodes of Johnny Test, if they're paying someone to actually make cartoons, obviously.
