A live-action Play-Doh film from Paul Feig is in the works; my brain hurts

04.02.2015

No, you’re not seeing things and as far as we know it's not still April Fools Day; the latest toy/brand/crumpled piece of newspaper to get the feature film treatment will be none other than that beloved childhood ball of coloured dough: Play-Doh. Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox is currently making a deal with Hasbro to bring about a live-action film based upon the toy brand. I'll give you a few moments to collect yourselves and then we'll move on.

Still with us? Good, lets continue. Deadline also reports that SPY director Paul Feig is in talks to direct the film from a script to be written by Jason Micallef. Paul Feig is certainly not the name I expected to see attached to this project; maybe he knows something we don't.

As I prepared to launch into a lengthy tirade about how Hollywood is completely out of ideas I recalled the last time I felt this way; THE LEGO MOVIE had just been announced and I was convinced that was it for Hollywood, they'd officially scraped the bottom of the barrel. Much to my surprise THE LEGO MOVIE was a wonderful film which fully realized the pure creativity that LEGO represents; so as much as I'd like to throw my hands up in the air, I feel as though I should at least wait and see what they have in mind and keep my fingers crossed that they can capture that same LEGO MOVIE magic.

Paul Feig's next film, SPY, opens in theaters June 5, 2015. Now if you'll excuse me...I'm off to smell some Play-Doh.

Since they've announced this no talent ass clown as the director, they might as well announce Melissa McCarthy as one of the characters, no doubt he can't make a movie without her...

I hate Paul Feig

The worst part about this is that he's not going anywhere for a long while. He's taking beloved franchises and brands such as Peanuts, Ghostbusters, and Play-Doh and capitalizing for easy money while sometimes butchering them (Ghostbusters). I seriously believe that the Peanuts movie will be a huge success and he's gonna be Mr Hollywood Elite at that point. Here's to hoping Ghostbusters tanks.

Lego Movie worked because of the creativity and the madness of Phil Lord & Chris Miller. Paul Feig only has Melissa McCarthy.

I have come to dislike Paul Feig's dick face in a fairly short space of time.

I'm sure there will be Play Doh character version of Melissa McCarthy somewhere in there. Sigh.

The only way I can see this working is if the characters are shaped/made of play-doh, similar to Gumby. Which begs the question, why not just make a gumby movie.

I came up with this idea already in 1998 but i was 10 years old, what's fox's excuse. Unless fox is ran by 10 year olds.

Oh, he's not destroying Play-Doh, he's merely "reshaping" it and making all of the characters out of Melissa McCarthy.
