Paul Feig Will Help Out on That 3D 'Peanuts' Movie
Looks like Jason Statham won't be the only cartoonish bald guy working with Paul Feig. As part of the Bridesmaids director's first-look deal at 20th Century Fox, he's reportedly now taking on a producer and shepherding role to "oversee" the studio's 3D animated take on Peanuts. As creator of cult favorite Freaks and Geeks, Feig of course has experience managing packs of awkward youths, and even told Deadline, "Charles Schulz's characters influenced everything in my career, especially Freaks and Geeks. I'm thrilled I finally get to be pals with Charlie Brown and Snoopy." He also went so far as to call the comic "[his] Star Wars." Hopefully that does not mean "[his] thing he will belatedly butcher with a bunch of CGI and misguided good intentions."
