Writers on "View-Master" Toy Movie

Posted: October 9th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Writers on "View-Master" Toy MovieSubmit Comment
Back in July, "Fringe" producer/writer Brad Kane announced via Twitter that he and writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek, Transformers) will be developing a movie based on the Fisher-Price "View-Master" toy, which is a device for viewing seven 3D images on a paper disk.

Now, during a press conference for the release of the "Star Trek" DVD, Orci and Kurtzman answered a few questions on the progress of "View-Master."

"The movies that work, work when there's a story there that you could take the toy out of, but then, when you put the toy in, it becomes an even more amazing experience," said Kurtzman. "Brad Kane, who was a writer for us on 'Fringe,' came to us with an amazing idea, that had absolutely nothing to do with View-Master. We loved it and thought it was fantastic."

He continued: "[Then] along came View-Master, and it sounded like the perfect marriage of ideas. But, it's because we started with a story that felt like it could be told, all on its own, before that came along."

Orci added that Steven Spielberg actually made "E.T." the same way. "His first draft story of E.T. didn't have an alien in it," he said. "It was a family drama about a kid missing his father, and E.T. was born from that."

The duo mentioned that Kane is currently finished the script.

You know you're talking bullsh*t when you include the film E.T. in a discussion on a film based around a f*cking an orange kid's binoculars.

How do you write a film around a Viewmaster?
