Mr. Ed 2011: The Secret of the Ooze
I’m gonna vote “nnnnneeyyyyy” on this one…
Fox has announced that it has acquired the rights to “Mr. Ed”, a show from the 1960’s about a horse
who was behind the Kennedy assassination that could talk. Hmmm, Hollywood’s fracking-style mining for reboots seems to have fatally poisoned the 1970s and 1980s pop culture wells and now they’ve been forced to go back yet another decade for new-old material.
This means that Fox will probably make a Mr. Ed movie shortly, that like all reboots will need to have a sexy Neil-Patrick-Harris-in-the-Smurfs movie edge. Not to continually dump on Hilary Duff on this blog (I think fate has done that enough), but her creepy, surgically enhanced horse teeth would bring some great sex appeal to the role of Mr. Ed. Or Ms. Ed I guess. Sarah Jessica Parker, America’s favorite equine faced gal-about-town, could play Duff’s mother!
Or they could just throw in some vampires and an inspirational Justin Bieber song. God I would see the shit out of that horse movie.
