As LatinoReview suggested yesterday, Robert Rodriguez is currently in talks with Warner Bros. to create a live-action version of the once-popular animated series The Jetsons. That is, if he decides not to join up with Universal Pictures and Will Ferrell to direct Land of the Lost.
And some of you thought Grindhouse's flop might have hurt his popularity.
Rodriguez Roulette: The Jetsons or Land of the Lost
Land of the Lost with Ferrell or The Jetsons with Warner Bros? Tough call. It looks, however, that The Jetsons is far out in the lead on this race thanks to a script from Adam Goldberg that is much farther along.
The DGA could slow any project Rodriguez tries to join, considering he left the directors er, commune when they refused his request to share director's credit with Frank Miller on Sin City. Didn't Lucas leave the DGA when they did not approve of him placing credits at the end of Star Wars and none at the beginning? Not that Lucas cares, because he's rich biatch!
The only way Rodriguez could direct the studio movie is if he declared himself under "financial core" status with the DGA, where he pays partial dues but remains a nonmember.
So what is on Rodriguez's appetite, dinosaurs or space?
