This clever meme picture created about a year ago is now the inspiration behind a new film.

New Line Cinema has bought the movie rights to the adorable image Alex Panagopoulos added to his DeviantART profile under the name of begemott. Dwayne Johnson will be included in the feature film.

The picture itself features an adorable, but brave teddy bear ready to face the most intimidating of foes for its owner. The owner is a little girl fast asleep in her bed without any idea that her fate is on the line. Or maybe the battle sequence represents the girl's dream.

It's not much of a surprise that this meme picture reached popularity, but the fact that it is now being taken on by a major production company is a great inspiration to amateur artists everywhere. Stats for Film-Inspired Amateur Art Trending: Older & Chilly
