Judge Comedy Starts Shooting
08.25.08 by REELZ
Today Mike Judge, the Woody Allen of dumb mall culture, starts work on his latest feature, Extract. After 20th Century Fox treated Judge's Idiocracy exactly like you'd expect a major Hollywood studio to treat a modestly amusing, anti-corporate satire whose climatic scene involves a character extolling the virtues of reading, Judge is now working with Miramax. Extract is the story of a factory owner whose company manufactures flower-extract products -- and, we're guessing, ennui, frustration, and a vague longing for a more fulfilling life. In other words, we think Extract will be like Judge's cult-classic Office Space, only from Lumberg's point of view.
