When I was a naive little boy, I thought the first two Rush Hour movies were pretty hilarious. After doing a little growing up (read: none), and watching that god-awful movie, X-Men: The Last Stand, I realized how horribly bad your movies really were. Now comes news of Mr. Ratner wanting people to suffer even more by the hands of his man-made abortions:
During an interview over at MTV Multiplayer, discussing his "Best Director" Video Music Awards nomiation for his work on a Miley Cyrus video (what), Ratner states that he wants to direct a Guitar Hero movie.
No I shit you not.
"I love Guitar Hero and I think itâ€™s a part of pop culture. I would love to do a Guitar Hero movie, if Activision would ever let me. Iâ€™m trying to convince them, but why would you have a movie screw up such a huge franchise? Not that I would make a bad movie. So that would be cool, to do a Guitar Hero movie."
Yes, because every movie Brett Ratner has touched is pure gold.
Ratner continues, describing the plot:
"It could be about a kid from a small town who dreams of being a rock star and he wins the Guitar Hero competition. One of these dreams-[come-true] kind of concepts."
I kept reading over the article hoping that it was some sort of joke gone horribly, horribly wrong. I don't know what's worst: the fact he actually wants to make a Guitar Hero movie, or the fact the plot sounds awfully familiar.
Of course nothing is set in stone at this point and it's not like Activision to whore out the Guitar Hero franchise, right? RIGHT?!
