The Waterman Movie is an unfinished independent Flash animated comedy film based on the web series Waterman and was in a state of financial difficulty. The film was announced on March 16, 2007 via a blog which was posted on Waterman Studios' official site, stating that a film of the popular series Waterman would be made. The film will feature the voice of comedic actor Leslie Nielsen. Nielsen died on November 28, 2010, but had already completed recording for his part in the film. The release date was set for winter 2007, then changed to 2008. On January 14, 2008, Bryan Waterman stated that the film was only 40% done. He also stated that the film is "still moving ahead as scheduled." With over a year since any news on the project, a message was posted by him on February 3, 2009 stating, "That 2008 was a busy year for Waterman Studios" and that production of the film had come to a halt. In June 2011 during a live video on Vokle, he mentioned that he is aiming for a release of Christmas 2012, but that did not happen.
When famed comedy rock duo 16 Buttons of Justice is informed of the tremendous failure that is the 16 Buttons of Justice TV Show, the duo must come up with a plan to send ratings through the roof, before the show is canceled. Soon after hearing that Ready Espanosa, father to 16 Buttons of Justice front man Raccoon X, and a world-famous explorer have gone missing, the duo decides to document their own rescue attempt to save the greatest adventurer of all time.
In 2010, Bryan Waterman attempted to raise money for the film via Kickstarter with a goal of $35,000. Only $13,384 was pledged by the August deadline, so as per Kickstarter's rules, no money was raised.
