I wish there was a HIGH CONCEPT! tag.
There are so many old subs that need to have it amended!

Is that Nick Thune? Yes, yes it is. He's kind of a mad man, if you couldn't tell from his starring as a personified penis.
Oh Lord, also according to IMDB (not sure if it mentioned this in the trailer) the main character is named "Rich Johnson". Oh it is too clever!
They asked my penis to audition but they told me it wasn't going to be released on IMAX. Because my penis. Big big penis too big for frame.
Shaq refused to do whiteface to play the role of my penis.

Well, that's the worst idea for a movie I've ever heard.
Rodents of Unusual Size
There was some idiot in my creative writing class in college who the professor sadly told was not up to snuff because he wrote stories about conversations between him and his penis-that-came-to-life. His penis even had a face, like Thumb War characters. I think it depressed her to have to tell him this because he was really excited about this idea and to a room full of fairly normal people (housewives writing about washing dishes, fantasy nerd writing about orcs, everyone else trying to write drama and me with my historical fiction attempts) it was always uncomfortable when it came to the time of class where he would read these out loud.
I always thought to myself "holy crap something like that would only be funny to a drooling mentally unstable 12 year old". And now it's a movie. Hooray!
This is an interesting twist on the classic formula made popular by "Me & Him"
What's funny is I could see this concept working to a certain degree. For example, the v2s in Gravity's Rainbow are controlled by Slothrop's dick, and Cronenberg does weird sexual metamorphoses all the time in his films. A short film, full length movie or story about a sexual organ coming to life is pretty intriguing, but then again we wind up with whatever pile of shit this is going to be.
I'm reminded of all things of Lars and the Real Girl, a film we showed at our theatre: The trailers made it look horrible, like Mannequin but with heart throb Ryan Gosling, who falls in love with a blow up doll only he perceives to be real. Looked dreadful and we'd all joke about it during the trailers, but when we actually saw it, the general consensus was "wow! That.. wasn't what I was expecting!"
I don't have any expectations for this film pulling off anything similar, but maybe I'll be proven wrong (doubtful)
John Holmes Motherfucker
His penis turns out to be evil personified. Just think of all the angry MRA videos we'll be posting in here over the summer!
It's the worst idea for a movie, or the worst execution of said idea?

So he cut off his Johnson?
Wait, so this is an actual movie that is being made?
But he wished for his penis to _leave him alone_! That is NOT what that penis is doing.
This concept would be pretty cool if it was about being transgender and haunted by your past life personified as your ex-penis turned imaginary friend. It could be the feel good movie of the 2010's.
