Netflix is taking Seinfeld from “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” to sugary “head blowing” breakfast material. The streaming service has bought Seinfeld’s movie about the creation of the Pop Tart. I guess anything can get a movie nowadays, huh?
Seinfeld’s most popular big-screen appearance is his animated “The Bee Movie” in which he lends his voice to a bee. His latest project has brought him from honey to frosting. However, this will be a live-action comedy. Seinfeld will direct, produce, and star in the Pop Tart project. Additionally, he co-wrote the project along with Spike Feresten and Barry Marder. Both of the other writers have worked with Seinfeld before. In fact, Feresten has written a few episodes of Seinfeld’s sit-com, including “The Soup Nazi,” one of the show’s best. Meanwhile, both writers also collaborated with the comedian on “The Bee Movie.”
While we have no confirmed release date, there is a bit we know about the film’s source material. The movie is titled “Unfrosted,” and is inspired by a popular joke Seinfeld has done in his standup. Moreover, he used it in his 2020 stand-up special “23 Hours to Kill” which you can watch on Netflix right now.
