From Sci Fi Wire:

Keaton Steers Herbie

Michael Keaton will join Lindsay Lohan in Herbie: Fully Loaded, a new movie in Disney's venerable Love Bug franchise, Variety reported. Angela Robinson is directing. Keaton takes the role after completing First Daughter for director Forest Whitaker.

The original 1968 The Love Bug starred Dean Jones and Buddy Hackett in a comedy about a Volkswagen beetle with a mind of its own, the trade paper reported. Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant wrote the new Herbie, which sets the story in the world of NASCAR racing.

Ah...NASCAR racing. So, in other words, everytime somebody in the grandstand sneezes they will throw a yellow flag and run the next 15 laps behind the pace car. And if any car has a lead of more than a 8 feet during the last 10 laps they will find an excuse to throw another yellow flag so that everybody can close in on the leader. It's the pro-wrestling of motorsports.

That being said, if any company produces a proper Herbie kit with decals, I'll buy a few.

Well, if it's NASCAR you can bet Racing Champions will have models of every car that appears in the movie!

Is this going to be a new beetle Herbie or the same old '63 we've all grown to love?

Since Polar put out a statement that they would not do anymore movie tie-ins, would this mean they would withdraw the kit?
