FOX Developing E*Trade Talking Baby Movie

Yes, Hollywood just ran out of ideas:

Exclusive: 20th Century Fox Developing an E*Trade Talking Baby Movie


20th Century Fox is developing a film based on the E*Trade talking babies. No. I am not making this up. Actress and writer Katie Dippold (“Parks and Recreation,” “MADtv”) is penning the script. And no. I’m not kidding. The film is a “mission movie,” about a group of talking babies trying to make their way across the playground.

NO. I am not lying to you! Why would I lie? What reason would I have to bring you news like that if it weren’t true. Hell. Don’t blame me. Blame The Hollywood Cog. He’s the one that told me. Better yet, blame 20th Century Fox. No wait. Blame E*Trade. They’re responsible for the goddamn talking babies in the first place.

I cannot believe that someone is making a movie based on the E*Trade babies. A talking baby movie is bad enough, but one that’s based on a television commercial campaign?

We live in a sick world, people. A sick, sad world.

Re: FOX Developing E*Trade Talking Baby Movie

Today's movie execs are too young to have seen Look Who's Talking, so they actually think talking babies is a "fresh" idea. Oh, and it has synergy.

What we need is the E-Trade talking baby and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog together in a movie. They could play cops who fight crime and shit.

No. No no no no no no no no fucking no. Those commercials are Satanic.

If they make a movie out of that Dell Inspiron netbook commercial where those construction workers sing "Lollipop", I'll jump off the Sears Tower.

EDIT: I just realized it's less than 24 hours to April 1st. Guess some people are jumping on the bandwagon now?

Re: FOX Developing E*Trade Talking Baby Movie

Are the execs at Fox holding their own version of an 'ugliest date' party, except instead of seeing who can bring the ugliest date they are competing to see who can greenlight the shittiest movie?

"Ooh, Bob just greenlit Marmaduke! He may have this in the bag..."

"Not so fast... you know those E*Trade commericals? Well..."
