Grim Fandango movie already released! Not a joke...

Hi!
I exposed this idea on the general Mixnmojo forums , but none got really interested.So I decided to try on a more "specialized" forum...

There are often rumors on the net about a Grim Fandango movie... well... that's really strange...

Haven't you seen yet the already-released-and-available-on-DVD-and-soon-I-think-HDDVD-Grim Fandango movie?

I don't know if someone already noticed that, but one CG movie got some HEAVY inspiration from Grim Fandango: Monsters Inc.

An outer world where a Department-like structure fulfill a "social service".

A conspiration inside the Department.

A strong rivalry for "the most efficient worker" award between the two best employers of the Department.

The searching for a loved-one.

A secret-resistance movement inside the Department itself.

Mmmmm, just a coincidence? Perhaps you can find other similarities by yourself!

I'm sure that no more than a couple people tops who worked on Monsters Inc. had even heard of Grim Fandango. Also, your English makes your post a little...confusing, but I think I understood the gist of it.

A premise: I loved Monsters Inc. , and I believe that It's one of the best CG movies ever made.
And I believe that Pixar succeded in many of its productions because it had created something completely new everytime: every movie is an entire world to explore.

That suggest , perhaps , a strong will for research and inspiration for Pixar , something that other studios not very often demonstrate.

What do I want to say? I think that people at Pixar spend a lot of energy in research in many field , from painting to comics , from cinema to video-games.. and since they appear to be such ingenious people... why shouldn't they have found and loved a masterpiece like our beloved Grim Fandango?

I think that's the line that's causing some people to scratch their heads. You're making it sound like a Grim Fandango movie was already made and released, which I'm about 98% sure is not the case. Also, I'm glad to hear that English is not your first language, lots of people on these forums just don't have an excuse at all.
