Aaron McGruder working on a movie?

Aaron McGruder never mentioned why he was taking his six month hiatus from his feature, Boondocks. Among the list of reasons mentioned on bulletin boards was that he either burned out or needed more time to work on the second season of his television show. In a story in today’s Vibe online magazine there is a line about Katt Williams working on a movie with Aaron. No details are provided, nor have any other googling turned up any further stories to substantiate the claim. For now, I’ll treat it as a rumor, but keep an eye on it incase it is true.

Seems like this might be the movie version of “Boondocks” McGruder was talking about back in January:

So apparently it’s more than just talk – there’s actual work on it. It will be interesting to see how the Boondocks franchise plays out. My fear is that he might kill the goose that lays the golden egg. In Aaron’s push to capitalize on Boondock’s new found popularity, will he discountinue the strip? Without it, I think the tv, movie deals will run a natural course of public interest and then get tossed aside when the next new thing comes along. Without the comic feature to keep his fan base interested in his work, I think he might disappear into obsurity – most likely very wealthy.

Sorry – that was probably a jumbled rant. Carry on.
