Burger King: The Movie?

Well, McDonalds (Mac and Me); White Castle (Harold and Kumar go to White Castle); and Starbucks (Akeelah and the Bee) have all thrown their hats into the cinematic ring at one point or a another, so why not Burger King? But really, how desperate does Hollywood have to be to develop a project like this? According to a report in Advertising Age magazine, the advertisement agency Crispin Porter & Bogusky (the firm behind the creepiest Burger King TV commercials I have ever seen) is developing a film -- the firm says will take place in an apartment above a Burger King -- and actually describes it as a cross between Napoleon Dynamite, Garden State, Raising Victor Vargas and What's Eating Gilbert Grape?. Any other films they'd like to throw into the mix? There apparently is a partially written script, but no director, no cast and no studio attached as of yet. The budget is set at under $10 million and (note to Tom Hank's agent) the movie reportedly will not feature any name stars.
