Guam Goes To The Moon?

Is this real???

“A retired astronaut regrets the fact that he missed his chance to go to the moon. He spends his days developing a theme-park ride, until he is given new hope when the commonwealth of Guam hires him to start a space program…” [link: The New York Times]
and here…
“Plot: A washed-up ex-astronaut gets a second chance at going to the moon when he is selected by a wealthy industrialist who wants to put his homeland of Guam on the map by starting a space program…” [link: sciflicks.com]

I don’t see a director listed in the credits, but the producer listed is Jordan Kerner who produced Fried Green Tomatoes, a favorite of mine, and many other familiar and successful films. One of the writers listed is Jon Favreau who wrote the screenplay for Swingers, another favorite of mine.
Wow. Wow!
??????????
UPDATE:
This page lists J.B. Rogers (American Pie 2) as the director, and this page lists Jonathan Lynn (My Cousin Vinny, The Fighting Temptations) as the director.
(Thanks, Mike!)

    so i did a quick imdb search (i’d guess you already did that) for “guam goes to the moon”. here’s a few movies that came up in the results;
    1. National Lampoon Goes to the Movies (i don’t remember this one)
    6. Columbo: Columbo Goes to the Guillotine (love columbo!)
    16. The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds (this is a ‘must see’)
    and (drum roll please)….
    19. The Happy Hooker Goes to Washington (this sounds like a classic too!)
    will have to keep an eye out for this. sounds like fun!

    This has been around for quite some time: http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117491250.html?categoryid=13&cs=1
    Notice that the article was posted on 2/12/99. But hey, supposedly movie ideas float around Hollywood for awhile before things get done(“Hancock” took about 10 years, I read). It could still happen!
