Someone's actually making a Joust movie

Justin McElroy

You know us. We normally stick to our own business, avoid trying to tell others how to run their lives. Unfortunately, much like the crabby old woman in the apartment directly below yours, we can't keep our mouths shut about this. Two Hollywood producers, Christine Peters and Michael Cerenzie, have made a new company aimed at the movie goer under 25 years old called CP Productions. The first project? "A new imagining of Midway Games' classic Joust."

There are a hundred reasons why this is a terrible idea, but we're going to pick our favorite (besides the fact that it's a game about fighting giant buzzards). Joust was released in 1982 and the movie's due in 2008. That means that the target demo for the film was between 0 and negative 12 years old when Joust came out. Congrats, CP Productions, it sounds like you're off to a great start.
