Obviously, this is a sequel/trilogy heavy summer, but I'm so done with Shrek. I know adults and children alike love the goofy green guy and his company of merry men, include Donkey, Puss, and Fiona, but I can't believe they plan on making Shrek 4.
And it's not just that, but the franchise's quality just seems like it has no where to go but down. The buzz of the day says that Mike Mitchell will be directing Shrek 4...who's Mike Mitchell? None other than the director of Director of Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, Surviving Christmas, and Sky High.
Come on let this thing die...why does Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy keep on returning to this project?
So with the first film about Fiona and Shrek's union, followed by the meeting of the parents, followed by the baby this summer...what's in store for #4 in 2010?
Well Cameron Diaz and Julie Andrews are both pushing the 4th installment of Shrek to have an environmentally friendly message...polar ice caps melting? a polluted swamps? Conservative oil men creating wars to secure energy resources? Who knows but whatever the story the director of Duece Bigalow's name gets to be melded with the project...yippee, thanks Dreamworks.
Note: The Most Recent Land Before Time movie was #12, The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers...are dinosaurs even cool anymore? I guess as penguins have become more popular, dinosaurs have lost their appeal, perhaps explaining the troubles getting the crew and directors of Jurassic Park IV together.
