I Am A Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to be Your Class President

Who knew that the Cartoon Network classic “Dexter’s Laboratory” was being eyed for a live action feature film? No one did, because I totally just made that up.

What is coming to a theatre near you is the eerily Dexter-esque film “I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to Be Your Class President,” an adaptation of the book proposal by “Daily Show” writer Josh Lieb… I guess the writer’s strike was a productive time for one of Jon Stewart’s crew, anyway.

Warner Brothers emerged victorious in the bidding war over the not-yet-printed book about an awkward adolescent who attends middle school by day and plots the world’s destruction by night… news on whether he has a sister named Dee Dee was not available.

Warners acquired “I am a Genius” for McG to produce, assumedly after he finishes directing the latest “Terminator” film.

I don’t really like McG. If you are not a character on “Grey’s Anatomy” you shouldn’t be called “Mc” anything, as far as I’m concerned. But who cares about the producer’s name when the name of the movie is so glorious. To repeat, the title of this film is: “I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to Be Your Class President.”

Brilliant! Sorry “Snakes on a Plane,” you have been surpassed.

Bet on how long it will take McG to shorten the title here.
