According to MTV News, "In Grant Morrison’s epic comic mini-series “We3,” a trio of common house pets are transformed into an elite squad of deadly, robotic assassins, armed to the paws with high-tech weaponry. So the fact that producer Don Murphy sought out a director who had experience working with ass-whoopin’ animals, well… the puns pretty much write themselves."
John Stevenson, director of the summer hit "Kung Fu Panda," will be directing the live-action film "We3." Even though his last film was fun for the whole family, this next project is going to be a bit more violent.
“We’re doing it as an R-rating,” said Murphy. “It’s not going to be cutesy. There’s killer rabbits and stuff. We’re in the process right now of trying to figure out where we’re going to make it.”
New Line Cinema, the company that the film is currently under, doesn't really take to these kinds of movies. So hopefully the film will start production soon.
“The new New Line doesn’t want to do these kinds of movies,” said Murphy. “We have two really good prospects. [Producer] Susan [Montford] was able to get this film going just based on the treatment before the comic so we’ve been on this a while.”
According to ShockTilYouDrop, "Written by Grant Morrison, who adapted his own source material, the action-packed, hyper-violent and heartbreaking story focuses on three test animals - a dog, a cat and a rabbit - who are infused into prototype combat suits equipped with various weaponry. Thanks to chips in their skulls, they're allowed to speak. This trio breaks free and We3 tells of their perilous return home. The series was released in 2004 and was illustrated by Frank Quitely."
Would you see this kind of movie? Do you feel that it should be made?
