It's About Time

'Benji' to be resurrected - Entertainment News, Film News, Media - Variety: "Walden Media wants to put scruffy but lovable canine Benji back on the bigscreen.

The Fox-based shingle, behind such family fare as the 'Chronicles of Narnia' franchise, has paired with Brandon Camp, son of 'Benji' creator Joe Camp Jr., to write, direct and produce a pic that will reboot the character for a new crop of young moviegoers."

Will this one be "dark" and "gritty"?

Is there even a bit of 1980s flotsam and jetsam that hasn't been remade yet?

Benjie said...

No, no, no. The original emerged when I was in fourth grade--fourth-graders have no mercy. I have been correcting people's spelling of my deminuitive version of my name ever since. (It boils down to "I'm an 'e' better than the dog.")

Having never seen the original, I'll have no trouble missing this, even though I think the dog is cute.
