This new Jonas Brothers “Walter the Farting Dog” movie (reported in Variety) would not be the first movie from a story by author William Kotzwinkle….
I speak not of his novelization of “E.T.” but rather of his work on:
Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master
Which, if I recall correctly through the haze of many years, was rather a spot of fun.
As for a Walter movie, I could actually see it. Something like That Darn Cat, perhaps. (That Darn Cat also began life as a kid’s book.) Or, on the other hand, it could be really terrible like That Darn Cat (the remake).
As evidence of this: “While his brothers play music, Frankie and the gaseous hound get involved in a plot that involves … thwarting jewel thieves.”
But what they really need to make the movie work is Elsa Lanchester. Who deserves her own post. Coming right up….
