        And which actress are going to get their lips pumped that large? This is crazy. I am anxious to see who they get as actresses just out of pure curiousity as to what they look like.

              You know, not all of us need collagen injections. Some of us have very naturally large lips.

                The actresses also need to be really skinny with bobble type heads.
                Lindsay Lohan?

                  In order to encourage women to become anorexic? No thanks.

                  Ever notice how none of the superhero characters ever REALLY are as muscular as they're drawn?

                    She was mainly just referring to how the dolls are made. I agree that if this is really going through and stuff the girls should be as realistic as possible.

                    But if they're going to match the dolls then you have to go skinny with bobble heads like Lindsay. I just don't see how this is going to work though with the way the dolls are made. Just like you've never seen a live-action Barbie movie (at least I haven't). Some things were just meant to stay animated.

                      Can you read my mind? I think you can because this is exactly what I meant.:thumbup:

                        Can't say as I disagree with that. It'll probably be more along the lines of that Josie and the *****cats movie with Rosario Dawson, though. Not so much a faithful adaptation but more like "inspired by" the Bratz doll line and animated movies.

                        EDIT: are you kidding me? The word P-U-S-S-Y-C-A-T-S gets censored?

                          Ugh. I loathe Bratz. Dolls, clothing, toys all of it. If I had a daughter I would NEVER buy any of it for her. I am so sad to see they are still doing well enough to make a movie about them. It's just the image our little girls need to look up to.

                                Lionsgate Picks Up Bratz Feature

                                Source: Lionsgate
                                November 10, 2006



                                Lionsgate announced that it will become home to the expanding entertainment franchise for Bratz, the highly popular brand of fashion dolls manufactured by leading consumer entertainment products company MGA Entertainment. The announcement today was made by Lionsgate President Steve Beeks.

                                The studio has acquired from Crystal Sky Pictures the U.S. distribution rights to the first feature film based on the popular Bratz characters, tentatively entitled Bratz: The Movie. Crystal Sky Pictures is financing the live action feature film, directed by Sean McNamara (Raise Your Voice, "That's So Raven") and written by Susan Estelle Jansen (The Lizzie McGuire Movie). MGA's Isaac Larian, Arad Productions' Avi Arad, and Crystal Sky's Steven Paul are producing the picture, and Crystal Sky Pictures president Benedict Carver will executive produce.

                                Lionsgate and MGA Entertainment have also reached a deal that provides the studio with the exclusive North American home entertainment distribution rights to future Bratz animated and direct-to-DVD features. The first title to be released under the deal will be Bratz Fashion Pixiez, an all-new direct-to-DVD feature that is scheduled for release in Spring 2007.

                                Bratz has quickly become one of the world's foremost toy lines and girls' lifestyle brands since its introduction in 2001, and its addition to Lionsgate's ever-growing library of popular children's brands enhances the Company's leadership as one of the primary distributors of children's and family entertainment. The Bratz array of spin-off products include a Bratz magazine, a top-rated animated series on 4 KidsTV, a number of DVD titles and videogames, as well as a number one-selling album on the Billboard Children's Chart and multiple lines of clothing, footwear and other accessories.


                                "There is no company that has a better pulse on what today's girl is looking for than MGA," said Lionsgate's Beeks. "Bratz has been a phenomenal success story; it's amazing to realize that the property is only five years old when considering its incredible popularity and penetration in the marketplace. At Lionsgate, we pride ourselves on delivering positive messages through unique and exciting experiences that empower young girls to follow their dreams. Bratz is a perfect complement to our ever-growing line of successful children's and family entertainment. We forged a terrific relationship with Avi Arad making 'The Punisher' and the direct-to-DVD Marvel Animated Feature series, and we are thrilled to be working with him at his new production company."

                                "I'm delighted that Bratz will again give me the opportunity work with my friends at Lionsgate," said Avi Arad, Chairman, Arad Productions. "With its target audience of young girls, Bratz represents a new chapter in the movie franchise business, and we couldn't ask for a better partner in this adventure than Lionsgate."

                                "We are very excited about working with Arad Productions and Crystal Sky Pictures to create the definitive Bratz live action feature film," said Isaac Larian, CEO, MGA Entertainment. "We consider Lionsgate an ideal partner for our Bratz live action theatrical film and animated features and welcome the company's innovative marketing techniques."

                                "Bratz underscores Crystal Sky's strategy of delivering strong film franchises to the worldwide distribution community," said Steven Paul, Chairman and CEO, Crystal Sky Pictures. "I am excited to be in business once again with Avi Arad, and for the first time with Isaac Larian of MGA; and there is no one better in marketing and distribution than our friends at Lionsgate."

                                MGA Entertainment will support Bratz Fashion Pixiez and each subsequent Bratz direct-to-DVD feature with all-new lines of dolls and other toys based on each of the movies. The marketing and promotional campaign supporting the releases will include a massive advertising campaign, cross promotions and much more. Additional details on the marketing programs will be released at a later date.

                                Bratz follows four teenage girls who are from socially and economically diverse backgrounds. What they have in common is their wish to be themselves and realize their dreams and aspirations. They start their journey separated by high school cliques, only to realize that by becoming Bratz, their lives will be more fulfilling. A story of empowerment and wish fulfillment, told through a unique mix of song, dance, and of course, fashion.

                                      I just thought that was appropriate since one of the main characters of the plastic surgery show Nip/Tuck is named Sean McNamara. :lol:

                                      Stupid movie idea. Won't be seeing it. I already saw it--it was called Mean Girls.

                                        Paula Abdul signs onto 'Bratz: The Movie'

                                        LOS ANGELES, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul has signed onto "Bratz: The Movie," the first live-action Hollywood work based on MGA Entertainment's popular fashion dolls.

                                        IGNFilmForce reported that Abdul will serve as a member of the film's creative team, offering her skills to the production in areas such as fashion, choreography and music.

                                        Much as she does on "American Idol," Abdul will work with the film's director, Sean McNamara, and other key film officials to discover fresh new talent for the production.

                                        "I am extremely excited about working on this film, which incorporates and celebrates so many of my passions, from music, dance and choreography to fashion and design," the former pop singer said in a statement. "As a brand, Bratz encourages young girls to follow their dreams and express themselves. This authentic and organic philosophy has always been an important part of my life and my work and I will always continue to nurture new talent while keeping their dreams alive."

                                        Production on the fashion doll-based film is scheduled to begin in February. It's tentatively set for an August 2007 release, IGNFilmForce said.
