"Benji" Remake in the Works

Posted: December 1st, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Benji" Remake in the WorksSubmit Comment
Walden Media (Chronicles of Narnia) is planning to reboot "Benji" for a new generation of young movie-goers and has teamed with the son of "Benji" creator Joe Camp Jr to write, direct and produce.

Camp (Love Happens) will begin a nationwide search to find a dog and hopes to partner with a rescue organization to "screen test dogs in pounds," he said, because the original Benji, a dog named Higgins, was a pound puppy. "My fantasy is to find a stray," he explained. "The original Benji, the one most of us grew up with, is the look that I'll be going for."

Benji first appeared in 1974's "Benji," as a homeless mutt adopted by a family. That film, developed for less than $100,000, went on to earn nearly $40 million domestically and spawned four follow-ups, including the Chevy Chase detective comedy "Oh, Heavenly Dog"; a short-lived Saturday morning kids show; a holiday TV special; a comic-strip; and merchandise lines during the '70s and early '80s.

f*ck Hollywood and f*ck Joe Camp Jr. for ruining another Hollywood classic.

And if they remake "Oh, Heavenly Dog" with Jason Lee, double f*ck them with a SuperSize side of AIDS.

No need to clone Mink, I am sure someone stuffed the original Benji and now all they need is a string to make it look like he's moving.

Dog looks like a guinea pig there.

Remember years ago, wrapping your guinea pig's waist with duct tape so it wouldn't explode when you f*cked it?

Ummmm... me either. I ahh... just heard things. Yeah that's it... heard things.
