FILM: Alvin and the Chipmunks in the Works

Actor Jason Lee and director Tim Hill, the dude who did Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties, team up to bring the infamous trio of chipmunks to the silver screen.

Remember the first Garfield movie? Well, it sucked...hard. Remember the second Garfield movie? It sucked even harder. Director Tim Hill, the guy who did that second one, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties, has signed on to do an Alvin and the Chipmunks feature film.

Now, I was a huge fan of the Chipmunks growing up and seeing a feature film be announced with this excuse of a director at the helm hits me like a bat to the head. Sure, it'll make some cash at the box-office and may garner a sequel, but you can almost guarantee it's going to be shit. I just hope they don't try and update the chipmunks with a more "modern" feel. The last thing I want to see is a chipmunk dance-off.



Jason Lee (Mallrats, My Name Is Earl) has stepped in to play Dave Seville, the often frustrated father of the chipmunks. While I like Lee, I think he's completely miscast in this role. Dave is a supposed to be the hard-working mentor and often annoyed mentor of the chipmunks who is also a bit of a dork. Lee just doesn't fit that mold. He's too cool and too smooth.

It's not yet certain whether the film will be live-action, a mix of CGI and live-action, or completely animation. Either way, you can bet this one's going to be a stinker.

What do you guys think about Alvin and the Chipmunks so far? Do you agree with me in thinking that it's going to be complete crap and a joke of a film or am I just too quick to judge?

Cheers.
