Talk about strange combinations. Variety Magazine is reporting that the Jonas Brothers, the tousle-haired, insanely popular Disney Channel boy band, just signed on to 20th Century Fox’ latest, a cinematic version of … “Walter the Farting Dog.” Yep, William Kotzwinkle and Glenn Murray’s bestselling Walter series – about a dog with flatulence so extreme, he’s been banned from the beach, a cruise ship and other public venues – is making the jump to the big screen. And the directors are likely to be the Farrelly Brothers of “There’s Something About Mary” and “Dumb and Dumber” fame. We were going to say something snarky, but really, there’s nothing to say. Jonas Brothers, a large gassy dog whose odor fells jewel thieves, Farrelly brothers … nope, that’s it. No, wait. Variety says, “The studio sees a potential franchise.”
So… you gonna go see it?
