It appears that Disney is looking to make a sequel to the 1997 film Flubber, starring Robin Williams. Here's the latest...Ah, “Flubber” – - how I miss your kindly jello exterior. Or not.
Actually worked on the 1997 flick – starring Robin Williams in the ol’ Fred MacMurray role – in a marketing position, so believe me when I say I’ve had enough “Flubber” to last me a life time. No, please, I just couldn’t fit any more in. That first round of green shit quashed my craving.
Disney are said to be considering sequelizing the Robin Williams comedy. Joy. Not a surprise though, is it? I mean, the original film that “Flubber” was based on, “The Absent Minded Professor”, spawned a sequel, “Son of Flubber”. According to Whats Playing, “Flubber 2″ or – wait for it – “Flubber 3D” hinges on Williams’ commitment. If he wants in, it’s a go, if he doesn’t? well, it goes the way of “Mrs Doubtfire 2″ (Remember?

Just some quick thoughts regarding the H20 workprint...
I finally got around to watching the HALLOWEEN H20 workprint that I've had lying around for going on seven years now. First impression? The music/score in this print is awesome! Why oh why was the majority of the music replaced with the SCREAM score? John Ottman's score was incredible (although, I did notice that he borrowed a little bit of the I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER score).
But that's okay, because Ottman's score really brought H20 to life. That, and viewing the majority of the movie with the KNB mask is like an all-new experience. Hell, just look at how much better the kitchen scene would have looked without that CGI mess.
I just can't stress enough how much better HALLOWEEN H20 could have -- and should have -- been. I mean, it's a solid film as is, but it could have been that "epic 20 year reunion" that they were striving for.
