Dog Adoption Fair Kicks Off ‘Grinchmas’ At Universal Studios Hollywood
  |  @   |  

This weekend marked the beginning of Grinchmas at Universal Studios Hollywood, the annual holiday event hosted by The Grinch and his sidekick Max the Dog from Dr. Seuss’ classic holiday tale How The Grinch Stole Christmas. To kick off the event, the California theme park is partnering with the Amanda Foundation and the Los Angeles Department of Animal Services to host the Max to the Rescue: Whoville’s Have A Heart Pet Adoption Fair happening today, Sunday December 12, 2010, from noon to 4PM in an area located near the theme park’s main entrance.

Max the Dog will be there to greet the animal shelter dogs and potential new pet owners. “Max” is actually Dusty, Dexter, Buster, and Scrapper, former shelter dogs, who were “discovered” by trainers who felt their playfulness, intelligence and “look” who perfect for the the Grinchmas celebration, as well as for TV and film productions.

According to USH, during Grinchmas, the four Max dogs perform for 30-minutes at a time, then enjoy a leisurely hour and half break, all the while interacting with their trainers. The rest of their time is spent in dog runs and in the company of other canine friends.

Robert Zemeckis Says ‘Roger Rabbit 2’ Script Already Being Developed By Original Writers
  |  @   |  

We’ve been hearing a lot from Robert Zemeckis in the past few months in regard to a potential sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, his classic live-action/cartoon hybrid. We’ve heard some good news, like that the 2-D animated characters will remain 2-D, though some new 3-D characters could be introduced (Read: SDCC 09: Director Robert Zemeckis Says 2D Characters Would Remain That Way In A “˜Roger Rabbit’ Sequel). We’ve also heard bad news, such as Bob Hoskins saying that he wouldn’t be able to come back and do a sequel if it happened (Read: Bob Hoskins Says “˜Who Framed Roger Rabbit 2″² Won’t Have Eddie Valiant? I Call Shenanigans!).

To add to all of that, Zemeckis recently spoke to MTV and shared some new news that will get fans really excited: not only is he serious about wanting to make Roger Rabbit 2, but he already has the original movie’s writing team of Jeffrey Price and Peter Seaman developing a script right this moment.
