Alvin, Simon and Theodore Find a Director?

by | January 25, 2007 | Comments

Been underperforming at work lately? Falling asleep at your desk? Caught surfing Rotten Tomatoes on the company dollar? Well, if you’re worried about job security, just move to Hollywood, where even the director of "Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties" gets a second chance. In fact, as ComingSoon.net reports, Variety is saying that "Tail" director Tim Hill is currently in talks to step behind the cameras for Fox’s upcoming CGI/live-action "Alvin and the Chipmunks."

Perhaps you remember the high-pitched cartoon chipmunks — irascible Alvin, quiet Simon, and pudgy, gullible Theodore — from their long-running cartoon series (and if you’re just a little older, you may remember their Top 40 hit, "Witch Doctor"). Perhaps not. Either way, you’ll have a chance to catch up with them on the big screen soon enough, and — given that movie studios seem intent on updating every single old Saturday morning cartoon — you should probably be preparing yourself for the inevitable "Foofur" and "Rubik, the Amazing Cube" movies.
