Country Bears movie...
This little tidbit was posted on alt.fan.furry by Joe Strike, and I thought it a little too surreal to be true. Christopher Walken is going to be in a movie with anthro or intelligent bears, produced by Disney? This is the same guy who was playing the vindictive, homicidal angel Gabriel in 'The Prophecy' and its sequel. It just doesn't mesh with reality, you know?
This is Joe's post to alt.fan.furry:
Came across the following item on "Aint It Cool News" today: http://www.aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=8853
According to the above item, this movie is currently in production -
takes place in a world where 10% of the population are intelligent bears
living alongside humans - & the favorite country music group is ursine.
Could this be any more furry? (The idea kinda sounds like a distant
cousin to one of the best adult furry novels ever, "The Bear Comes Home"
by Rafi Zabor - that one's all about a soulful, jazz saxaphone-playing
bear looking for his place in the world. In that book he's the one &
only intelligent animal in the world.)
Aint It Cool item is a brief summary of another website's article &
features link to that website. If you want to go directly to that

So I went and did some checking... and sure enough, the Internet Movie DataBase confirms it: Walkin is starring in the movie, which is set for release in 2002. I'm going to go see it just for the weirdness factor.
