An unnamed source — I know people, motherfuckers — has said that Warner Brothers and Weed Road Pictures is planning on adapting the British nature documentary “Meerkat Manor” to the big screen under the production helmage of my new archnemesis, Akiva Goldsman.

However, they’re planning on turning it into an animated feature. The logline: “A Pixar version of West Side Story meets The Sopranos.”

So apparently, it’s going to be four hours long, with awesome stuff happening the first hour, nothing of real note for the last three, and the finale is going to piss people off. Oh, and a meerkat’s gonna get poisoned. And then, there’s gonna be lots of meerkats dancing to the sultry tones of Ke$ha.

“Meerkat Manor” is basically footage of meerkats with overdubbing by actors. So this sounds like it’s going to be one giant version of that Farce of the Penguins piece of shit that Bob Saget was involved in. Except, it’s gonna be animated. So it’s gonna be Happy Feet. But with prairie dogs. Dancing fucking gophers.

It’ll make a billion fucking dollars.
