Blatant movie connecting-of-dots

I hope lots of people go see Hotel for Dogs this weekend! Why?
1. Who doesn't like dogs?
2. Because it's a Nickelodeon movie...and that helps the company I work for have lots of money to keep its magazine going!
2. Because it's directed by Thor Freudenthal, who is the director of Agnes Quill!
Here's a snippet from a recent interview:
MoviesOnline: Your bio says you wrote comic books? Have you ever thought of doing a comic book movie?
THOR: I totally do. In fact, Iâ€™m developing this comedy with Paramount called Agnes Quill and thatâ€™s an exciting property. I generally like the creation of worlds in a way and grounding those worlds in a reality thatâ€™s relatable. I grew up actually on the more European side of comics and I loved Tintin and Asterisks and these kinds of things. I wasnâ€™t really the Marvel connoisseur. But, yeah, I love anything thatâ€™s a visual medium and comics and movies are fairly close together to some extent. So, itâ€™s an easy translation.
Sidenote: Thor is ALSO directing the film adaptation of the crazy popular (and hilarious) Diary of A Wimpy Kid book series!
