Mojave Phone Booth.... THE MOVIE!!!

There are a lot of funny stories about random things in the world at this link, but my money goes to the following as the funniest:
The Mojave Phone Booth was a lone telephone booth in the Mojave National Preserve which attracted an online following in 1997, due to its unusual location. The booth was 15 miles from the nearest interstate highway, and miles from any buildings.

Fans called the booth attempting to get a reply, and a few took trips to the booth to answer, often camping out at the site. The story inspired the creation of a motion picture, Mojave Phone Booth, due for release in 2006.
Think about that for a second. Someone somewhere thought that a phone booth literally out in the middle of absolute nowhere would make a good subject for a film. I honestly want to know who came up with this idea, and punch him/her in the face for stealing an idea like that before I had it.
