Disney to Produce Penguin Film… Called ‘Tux’.

The relation to Linux is tangental at best, but the following is amusing in a way…

Deadline.com are reporting that Disney have hired†Night At The Museum†writer Robert Ben Garant to pen an†animated feature about a talking Penguin called, you guessed it, ‘Tux’.

The film is to be an adaptation†of “gritty” Japanese graphic novel ‘Tuxedo Gin’, the storyline of which sees a young street fighter “fall into a coma and learns that he …only has enough karma points to be reincarnated as an animal 15 pounds or less.”

That animal is a penguin.

For those unaware of why this is slightly†humorous the Linux mascot, Tux, is a penguin.†Here’s hoping for a Linux in joke somewhere ;)

I think i’ve written the word penguin too many times now.
