Make it stop: movie to be made based on the View-Master

Today’s I can’t believe they’re turning that into a movie story comes to us from a View-Master…you know, those binocular like things you insert pictures in to view.

Fringe co-producer/writer Brad Caleb Kane will be writing the movie for DreamWorks Pictures.

According to Coming Soon, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (“Fringe,” Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Star Trek) are behind the film and that it will be “like the old 80’s Amblin movies: Goonies, Young Sherlock… In that vein.”

If they sign Anna Torv for the lead role I’ll be the first in line to watch it, but that aside ZOMG MAKE THIS MADNESS STOP! Someone in Hollywood is just completely taking the massive piss on the entire planet now. Yesterday it was Asteroids, now it’s a View-Master, tomorrow it will be a plastic shopping bag (oh wait, they’d done that already with Confessions of a Shopaholic) and the day after a dog turd.
