Marvin the Martian Movie Still Happening, Getting Needlessly Expensive


How do you pointlessly add eight figures to the cost of an already pointless Marvin the Martian live-action/CGI movie? Make Mike Myers provide the voice! Because Shrek, you know? Says the LA Times:

The Marvin picture now also has writers -- Paul Kaplan and Mark Torgove, two television veterans (they've written and.produced shows like "Spin City") who also are writing the upcoming "CHiPS" movie.

And the producers are talking to a number of stars. One name that's come up is Mike Myers, no stranger to voice roles given his work on the Shrek franchise.

The plot for "Marvin" will remain what it was when it was first announced in the summer of 2008: Marvin comes to Earth to try to destroy Christmas, but his plans are foiled when he gets trapped inside a gift box.

Sorry, any number of talented voice actors who could easily replicate the already-distinctive voice of the popular Looney Tunes character for a fraction of the price: your names unfortunately don't have the distinction of being associated with The Love Guru.
