Rubik's Cube movie poster photoshop

Somewhere, a guy who solves Rubik’s Cubes with his feet is going to feel a little more legitimized thanks to CAA.  The agency has bought the film rights to the toy.  They’re shopping an idea around town about a film based on “some sort of Rubik’s Cube competition”.  You paid actual money for the rights over that premise?  You could have based it loosely around a competition for a puzzle toy that hasn’t been released yet and the toy company would have paid you for the advertising.  No?  You’re going to buy film rights for board games and Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots and gum wrappers instead?  Okay, Hollywood. But when you fall off that big pile of money and break your legs, don’t come running to me for sympathy.

Take a good look at that banner pic.  Look like something Hollywood would be above making?  Hell no.  In fact, it’s exactly like something they would make, and Ron Howard would direct it.  (Just kidding about the Lohan casting, of course. A Rubik’s Cube movie is believable, but Lohan getting hired?  Ha, right.)
