Director Alex Zamm has posted test footage from the in-development Hong Kong Phooey picture and nixed Marvin the Martian movie. As he’s done this, it might mean the Phooey film is dead too. Or it might mean that he can’t read his contract very well. Or it might mean nothing at all.
The Marvin clip is particularly interesting as it’s structured as a self-contained short. And I’m right to think this Phooey voice is being done by an Eddie Murphy impersonator, right? Maybe one of those guys from Hollywood Shuffle‘s line-up.
UPDATE: Our version of the video has had to go, but here’s another copy that somebody cloned from us.
Zamm’s Little Rascals movie is due out next year. It should be pretty light on cartoon characters recreated in CG.
Thanks to Cartoon Brew for the pointer.
