Marvin the Martian Movie and Hong Kong Phooey Test Footage
Director Alex Zamm has just posted a test footage from a Hong Kong Phooey picture, and a Marvin the Martian Movie that has been shelved. Since the test footage for the Hong Kong Phooey project has been released, it could either mean that the project has been shelved as well or that the director leaked the test footage with blessings from the studio in order to drum up attention to the project. Let’s hope it’s the latter.
The Marvin the Marvian clip is worth watching on its own because it’s been structured as a self-contained short. Titled “Yule Be Sorry,” it’s a live action/CG hybrid that features Marvin the Martian being mistaken by a kid as a Christmas gift. The Hong Kong Phooey clip is also a live action/CG hybrid, with Hong Kong Phooey’s voice sounding very much like Eddie Murphy’s (probably a voice impersonator?).
Even if both projects were put on the backburner, Zamm still has something to look forward to as his Little Rascals movie is slated for release next year.
