The One Nickelodeon Show That Needs To Be Live Action
Yesterday, 90's kids were shooketh when Nickelodeon announced that they'd be relaunching beloved animated series "Rugrats." Along with the 26 episode order that will bring back all the original characters, Paramount Players has given the greenlight to a live-action film featuring CGI characters. Who asked for this? 90's kids sure didn't. We hold "Rugrats" near and dear to our heart, we wouldn't want to taint the series. According to Variety, "Rugrats" original creators Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain will return to the TV series as executive producers. No news on the casting yet, but I think it will require some heavy searching for the voice of Chuckie as Christine Cavanaugh passed away in 2014.
If there's one show that Nickelodeon should be working to make a live-action film it should be "The Wild Thornberry's." That's right, THE WILD THORNBERRY'S DESERVE THEIR OWN LIVE-ACTION FILM! That show was iconic. With the success of "The Jungle Book" and with the recent string of nostalgic come-backs, "The Wild Thornberry's" would totally be successful. When talking about this with Lisa, we tried to decide who would play who in the movie. Tim Curry voiced the dad, Nigel Thornberry, #Smashing, but looks nothing like the animation. Lisa suggested Gary Oldman and also the guy who played the dad in "Jumanji," Jonathon Hyde. To me, they could chose whoever they want for it, just GET. IT. DONE! And they would totally have to use the show intro because it is so iconic!
