Linklater and Rodriguez have been busy, but Bee Caves wants to be even busier.
• Slashfilm reports Richard Linklater is set to direct the long-rumored remake of The Incredible Mr. Limpet, the 1964 film about a talking fish who consulted with the U.S. Navy. Reportedly, his Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly cohorts Femke Wolting and Tommy Pallotta are on board as well.
• Mondo Gallery is hosting a fanciful new exhibit during South by Southwest that combines our love of that specifically detailed Mondo aesthetic with our childhood Disney favorites. The exhibit "Nothing's Impossible" will show March 7-11 at the gallery (4115 Guadalupe), featuring new work by Jason Edmiston, Ken Taylor, Mike Mitchell, and many more. Check out a preview image of Taylor's work at right.
• According to TWC News, developer Chris Milam has petitioned the Bee Caves City Council for a zoning change in order to accommodate a $100 million film studio. Supernature Studios would include half a dozen sound stages, a live-music amphitheatre, office space (and jobs for as many as 2,000 employees), a hotel, and an onsite mill on 25 acres just west of the Hill Country Galleria.
• Congrats to ACC student Hugo Sanchez, who gets to attend the 86th annual Academy Awards ceremony as a bleacher fan. We'll be swooning on the red carpet vicariously, man.
• Just before it was officially announced that From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series would have its premiere at the 2014 South by Southwest Film Festival, Robert Rodriguez's El Rey Network dropped the series' first official trailer. Check it out below.
