But wait, I really don't care about this movie. I mean, I have a degree in Theatre* or something so I'll probably go see it, but what I want to talk about is this story from Dark Horizons. I'll save you some time and just sum it up for you: The guy who wrote the movie (it's called Anonymous by the way), John Orloff, is going to write the screenplay for the Battlestar Galactica movie. His other work includes a couple episodes of Band of Brothers as well as a movie with the needlessly long title: Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole.
I didn't see it, so I probably shouldn't pass judgement. Probably. According to Wikipedia, it's about Owls who fight to free Owl-kind from the tyranny of some other Owls...I think. Presumably the post-colon subtitle: 'The Owls of Ga'Hoole' will distinguish this movie from the flood of Owl sequels and spin-offs that are sure to follow.

|It's about time someone updated this old clunker. 2003? Did they even have TV back then?|
|This is Muffit, a robot-teddy bear |
played by a monkey. Good luck Orloff.
What? Am I being a jerk? Have you seen it recently? For real, Netflix it or something and then come talk to me.
|No, I'm only kidding, I really do hope it's a shot-for-shot, cape-for-cape remake.|
*You can tell I have a degree in Theatre because I spell it with a '-re.' Yup, money well spent.
