Eric Brevig has signed on to direct a forthcoming 3-D animated flick starring Yogi Bear! Woo-hoo! Yeah! Right on!

Wait.

Who the hell is Eric Brevig? According to The Hollywood Reporter Brevig’s “a longtime visual effects supervisor whose credits include The Day After Tomorrow and Men in Black.” His sole feature directing credit is Journey to the Center of the Earth: the Brendan Fraser one, not the old one.

At one point, Surf’s Up director Ash Brannon was attached to Yogi, but Warners decided to go 3-D on this one and found Brevig a better fit.

Bollocks, I say. Clearly the perfect person to helm this would be Martin Scorsese. I mean duh, just think …

RIPPLE DISSOLVE TO:

YOGI and BOO-BOO stand in a forest clearing.

YOGI
Hey hey Boo-Boo! Are we gonna steal us a pick-a-nic basket?

BOO-BOO
Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe fuck yourself.

RIPPLE DISSOLVE BACK TO:

MYSELF, taking swigs from a brown-paper-bag-wrapped bottle of cheap hooch and wondering why Warners never returns my calls or listens to FUCKING AWESOME ideas.
