|Wiebe might be weturning|
At least that's the word from director Seth Gordon.
If you're scratching your head on this one, don't worry, you're not alone.
According to an interview with The Playlist, Gordon is still finalizing plans to remake one of (if not the) best movies about video games ever made.
The low budget 2007 flick received loads of praise following release, resulting in New Line buying the rights to make a dramatic retelling of the battle between Donkey Kong rivals Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe.
If dramatizing that tale seemed like a bad idea, I don't know what to think of this new project, which Gordon is billing as more of a "mockumentary."
The current script was penned by Melissa Stack and, after working on such shows as Modern Family and The Office, Gordon said he feels compelled to use a similar style in retelling the story of The King of Kong.
"Instead of doing a traditional narrative feature script, what if we did the remake in the doc style," he said in an interview with Playlist.
Um...Haven't you pretty much already done that? And wasn't it pretty much perfect?
I have a new plan for Gordon: Leave it alone and move on to something new. Your desire to turn your own documentary into a mockumentary is leading me to believe your genius might actually be a wicked case of the coo-coo-bananas.
