Burger King's Chief Of Marketing Announces "Burger King: The Movie"

Yes, according to MSN, Russ Klein, Burger King’s president of global marketing strategy, has announced a Burger King movie starring the creepy masked “Burger King.” He tells MSN that Burger King has already “lined up a studio and distributor for a feature film.”

According to Klein “the movie could appear as early as the end of this year, with the film aimed at ‘creating a back story for the king.’” The hell?

How very Mac and Me of them.

Anyway, we’ll only see it if they get Sacha Baron Cohen involved. —MEGHANN MARCO

    This might just be stupid enough to work, ………………. not.

    How could this possibly be good?

    This reminds me of all those movies based off of SNL skits (the bad ones, like It’s Pat! or Ladie’s Man, not the great ones, like Blues Brothers or Wayne’s World)

  3. AcidReign says:

    …..They’ll get J. J. Abrams to do it. And it WILL be creepy as all hell, and we’ll be even more confused as to the King’s backstory when it’s all over.

    Am I the only person who liked Mac and Me? My sister and I watched that movie non-stop when it came out on VHS.

  5. homerjay says:

    And in a related story, Hollywood has announced that they have officialy run out of ideas.

  6. TedSez says:

    It costars the guy from “Super-Size Me” as the evil Dr. Healthypants, who wants to rob all the children in Burgerfunville of their right to be happy, carefree and obese.

  7. Youthier says:

    @homerjay: They haven’t even started remaking 80′s TV into movies yet! There’s years of movie material out there still.

    @missbrooke06: A real Knight Rider movie would be badass :p A-Team, too!

  9. healthdog says:

    The Burger King makes Baby Jesus cry.

  10. homerjay says:

    @missbrooke06: Okay, I’ll make a correction- Hollywood has officially run out of NEW ideas.

    Thats better… :)

    @gorckat:

    How about this: “A-Team meets Knight Rider”

    KITT has gone rouge, and the A-Team is hired to bring him in. Shortly into the movie, B.A. is killed by KITT but his brain is fine. They use modern technology to install his brain into the A-Team van, making him just like KITT!

    @AlteredBeast:

    Copyright that idea….quick!

    Anyone remember the Spicy Chicken vs Crunchy Chicken fight they aired on DirecTV PPV a couple of years ago? That was retarded but I love it. Two chicken mascots in a cagematch going all out!

    Oh how about the promotional tie-in for the Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith? Where the King and Darth Vader stood face to face breathing for 30 seconds straight. No words, just the calm creepy breathing. That was gold!

    Burger King has had some hits with their advertising so I wait to see what they’ll do next.

    Isn’t anybody going to ask why the “King of Burgers” is on a beach next to a half naked chick wearing a velvet/fur coat and white stockings? Is he rubbing his hands together or giving thanks to the Gods of Crappy Food for the Whoppers sizzling right next to him?? I’m afraid, make the bad man stop!

  15. John Stracke says:

    Even the non-mask version from the 70s was pretty creepy.

  16. John Stracke says:

    Where did you get that picture, anyway?

  17. AlteredBeast (blaming the OP one article at a time.) says:

    Lets get some suggestions going on who should play The King.

    I’d say, Vin Desil, or Jet Li.

  18. The Bigger Unit says:

    Wow. Just…wow.

  19. God, first the announcement that there will be a sitcom based on Geico commercials, now this.

    Pray that both these projects fail.

  20. Little Mintz Sunshine says:

    Now, if only the beaver and Honest Abe from the sleeping pill commercial could get a movie….”Harold and Kumar” meets “What Dreams May Come”. I do forsee that astronaut being a diva, though.

  21. John Stracke says:

    @AlteredBeast:

    Lets get some suggestions going on who should play The King.

    Johnny Depp.

  22. testkahuna says:

    @AlteredBeast:

    Donald Trump

  23. boreddusty says:

    @AlteredBeast: Jeff Bridges

  24. magic8ball says:

    @AlteredBeast: Lloyd Bridges.

  25. magic8ball says:

    Yes, I know he’s dead.

  26. pylbug says:

    dohtem, you seem to praise all things CP&B. Is it any coincidence that your user name is another CP&B client, spelled backwards? Just curious.

  27. Wally East says:

    @AlteredBeast: Sean Penn. It would be awesome to see him have no sense of humor about it, too.

  28. Uurp says:

    Ellen DeGeneres. Go ahead, take a look at the King’s face.

  29. TankGrrl says:

    Wow just when I thought that Hollywood couldn’t get any worse……maybe he and the Hamburgler can go on a heist robbing 7-11′s! Now that might be interesting.

  30. dohtem says:

    @pylbug: haha, no I am just a fan I guess. I didn’t know who did those commercials till you pointed it out.

    Love them or hate them, their commercials are not the same ol’ is all I’m saying.

  31. ZonzoMaster says:

    I’m totally not gonna waste my time watching THAT movie.

  32. Xkeeper says:

    @homerjay:

    Except suing people and implementing new DRM. That’s always, always fun!
