I hope you're sitting down, because here comes a ... wait for it ... car 'toon!
... Larry Kasanoff's Tinseltown Toons [is set] to produce "Nascar: The Secret Life of Cars." ...
The direct-to-DVD pic will be distribbed by Universal Studios Home Entertainment in 2011. The final title may change.
Film, which will detail what happens in a Nascar garage when the humans have left and the cars come to life, is being eyed as a way for the racing org to try to lure a younger generation of fans at a time when the sport is watching its viewership head in reverse.
What an absolutely smashing, original idea! An animated feature about cars! Who would have thought of it?! Somebody over there at Tinseltown is really earning his money this week. I'm stunned.
But then, that's why Larry K. pulls down the big bucks and makes the big deals, and the rest of us just muck about in the trenches, hoping for an occasional dollar bill to drift our way.
