Boop-Oof-a-Doop: Simon Cowell Making Betty Boop Movie

Simon Cowell is bringing back Betty Boop, presumably just so he can chide her about her awful voice. According to Variety, the frequent talent judge is developing and producing the first feature-length film based on the cartoon character, capitalizing on the timeliness of a shapely, Jazz-age flapper. Like so much of Cowell's questionable catalogue, this will be "music-driven," and Lego Movie animation studio Animal Logic has come on to make the film a "hybrid animated comedy." It's expected to be the first time an American Idol judge has combined musical animated hybrids and discomforting sexuality since MC Skat Kat mounted Paula Abdul.
