Takashi Murakami, that crazy successful artist who takes the otaku stuff of bittorrents and rapidshares and

301 Moved Permanently

sells them on Sotheby's for millions, is expanding the Kaikai Kiki empire.  According to the Los Angeles Times, he's going to have a film studio in Hollywood, because that's the place you want to be if you're going to be making a feature-length film about two creatures jetting around in a spaceship growing watermelons with poop.
