Is it just me or are we doing more and more stories about original stuff getting the greenlight in Hollywood these days? After the glut of remakes it sure is nice to report on stuff like Monster Zoo, a title that just makes me smile on general principal.
Variety reports this morning that Paramount has nabbed the feature rights for Monster Zoo, a graphic novel from Douglas TenNapel that will be out from Image Comics this Spring. Buckaroo Entertainment’s Sam Raimi and Josh Donen are producing but I have a question; what the hell is Buckaroo Entertainment?
Anyway, TenNapel is the creator of Earthworm Jim, which is all the info I need to want to see this made yesterday. Monster Zoo will be the story of a kid who discovers that his local zoo contains a much broader range of creatures than most…
