Hungry Hungry Hippos: The Movie

(YouTube link)

Oh sure, you've heard the joke quite a few times after the game Battleship was made into a feature film. The trailer here is a joke, from Film School Rejects. But the Hungry Hungry Hippos movie is really supposed to happen.

Hasbro, the company behind the hits "Transformers" and "G.I. Joe" and the flop "Battleship," has signed a deal with independent production and finance company Emmett/Furla Films to make movies based on the board games Hungry Hungry Hippos and Monopoly and the toy Action Man.

Rhode Island-headquartered Hasbro, which has a film production office at the Universal Pictures lot, announced the three-picture deal Thursday and confirmed that the first movie will be "Monopoly," which the two companies hope to start production on in 2013.

Monopoly, under producer Ridley Scott, was already in development at Universal and will continue with Emmett/Furla Films as co-producer. Link -via Buzzfeed

The irony is, real-life hippos are actually quite bad-tempered, territorial and dangerous; I've read that every year in Africa, they kill more people than any animal except mosquitoes. They really do overturn boats and attack the occupants. And if they just want to give you a warning, they don't roar at you, but.. cut loose from the other end.
