Paddington Bear Movie Happening, Mighty Boosher in It?

January 7, 2010


A shock to me even though I apparently talked about it two years ago, there's an Alvin and the Chipmunks-style CGI-animal-in-the-real-world version of Paddington Bear coming out, and The Sun claims Noel Fielding of The Mighty Boosh will be in it playing what sounds like a godawful freak:

Clown prince Noel will play Paddington's cousin - a half man, half beast who also comes from Darkest Peru.

He has been signed by Mighty Boosh director Paul King, who is penning the movie with Hamish McColl, co-writer of 2007 comedy flick Mr Bean's Holiday.

Seeing that I'm no longer a petulant British child, it's been some time since I've read a Paddington Bear story, but I really don't remember there being a nightmarish chimera cousin that would clearly be horrifying if visually realized. Was there? Because it sounds fucking wretched. Will this half-man, half-beast walk and talk or just kind of writhe around as its mixed cells desperately struggle to cooperate? This has Gooby written all over it.
