Suddenly getting skittish about all the bright lights and clanging metal inherent in the Short Circuit remake he just agreed to do, director Tim Hill is already fearfully retreating back into the warm, familiar fuzz of CGI animals. The Hop director and Tim Curry/Ron Jeremy fusion is now in talks with Paramount to direct Walter the Farting Dog, based on a series of children's books about a dog that farts a lot. Sounds right up Hill's alley. When the project was being setup at Fox, the Jonas Brothers had been attached to star, but there is no longer such a tantalizing promise on the table, leaving us but to speculate. So... who do you think they'll get to do the fart noises?
