Bazooka Origins: Joe to Tell Haunting Back Story of One-Eyed Gum Mascot | Movieline
It’s called Bazooka Joe, a script commissioned by Eisner’s Tornante shingle to help pump interest in the Topps-owned brand. It remains to be determined if Mark Hammer’s screenplay will somehow make Bazooka any less stale or preserve its flavor past its current three-minute threshold, but that hardly compromises the fascinating nature of the project. On one hand, as THR notes, the comic adventures of Bazooka Joe and his ragtag gang have plenty of potential family appeal (unless you’re a dentist).
