I thought they were trying to PREVENT Owen Wilson from killing himself.

This seems weird, I mean the comic strip doesn't really tell a story...it's just little one shots.

Didn't they already do a movie like this called Scooby Doo?

Good one, InstigatorGIRL - too true. I predict EPIC SUCKAGE for this project (of course it IS Owen Wilson we're talking about, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise)!
