In a million years, I never thought this day would come. It's unbelievable and, honestly, I'm totally flattered. You're probably wondering why I'm so excited, and I'm happy to share with you the following fantastic news: Fox Atomic is making a movie about me! Seriously, I'm just about as shocked as you are. In fact, I had no idea this whole thing was going down until I read Variety this morning. Yeah, way to keep the pic's main character in the loop, right?
The film is called Captain Awesome (ie: yours truly), and Fox Atomic has just picked up the script. Written by Mike Arnold and Chris Poole, the high-concept plot is currently being kept under wraps, but folks are leaning towards it being about some dude who writes for Cinematical by day and transforms into an awesome superhero at night. I mean, that's if they decide to use me as the pic's main focus -- after all, "Captain Awesome" was the nickname my doctor gave me at birth. Mark O'Connor has come onboard to produce, which marks his second time working with the writing duo. Arnold and Poole (who are lawyers by day and screenwriters by night) recently sold a spec called The Grackle, with Matthew McConaughey reportedly attached to star.
No word yet on casting for Captain Awesome, but the filmmakers should know that they're going to have to work around my schedule here at Cinematical. That's right, my loyalty is with them ... but I'll be happy to show up on set and help the actors get into character.
