"Farce of the Penguins"...THINKFilm Says Yes

Indiewire By Indiewire | Indiewire November 3, 2005 at 5:18AM

An insider commenting on a press release received today by indieWIRE doubted that it was legit, but here it is...THINKFilm has announced the acquisition of a new movie dubbed "Farce of the Penguins." The movie, by Bob Saget (featured in "The Aristocrats" and star of "Full House"), is described as "comedic adventure that will combine spectacular and heartwarming wildlife photography with an irreverent and decidedly R-rated theme and soundtrack." In the spirit of his voiceovers from "America's Funniest Home Videos," Saget will give life to penguins images after coming up with the idea "organically" -- "I was watching the "March" movie at a screening at my friend's house, and I couldn't stop doing the voice-overs of the penguins," he said in a statement, "Reminiscent of when I did the voices of the animals on the video show. My friend David Permut (who is producing the film) said, there's a great comedy movie in this!!" Rights are being sold at the AFM. the project is one of a few new ones for Saget, who is developing a salty sitcom for HBO. [Eugene Hernandez]
