Kung Fu Panda writers want to travel to Candyland

03.28.2011

In events that should be surprising to no one, the CANDYLAND movie has finally bagged some scribes.

The poor unfortunate souls that wrote KUNG FU PANDA, Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger will be penning the screenplay for the board game adaptation. Why can't we just settle on that Katy Perry video as the closest thing to a CANDYLAND movie and call it a day?

I will say that this idea is better than the Magic Eight Ball pitch. Plus kids will probably really love it. Candyland was a fun game to play when I was five. After that, I realized how boring it was. I still loathe you, Lord Licorice.

The CANDYLAND movie has been floating around since 2008. The story is, "centered around finding the lost king of Candy Land." Will it be animated? Nope. The plan right now is to do it up live action style.

Extra Tidbit: CLUE will reign supreme in board game adaptations.

On the fence...

While I don't think they should turn around and make every single toy or board game into a full length feature film, I would be willing to give this a shot. If it was animated. Live action kind of scares me. And yes, Clue was and always will be the best adapted board game into a movie. That cast, from Madeline Kahn, to Christopher Llyod, Martin Mull, Michael McKean and even the cameo of Jane Weidlan as the singing telegram, no board game adapted movie will ever compare to that cast and the

P.S. Tim Curry is the man.

Tim Burton will direct this

I can see it now...Tim Burton's Candy Land. It'll make $300 million dollars and just be another in his recent line of craptastic Burtonizations of otherwise unique worlds like Willy Wonka and Alice in Wonderland.

I agree with you 100%. "Clue" is the ultimate board game adaptation and Tim Curry was brilliant in the movie.

If you could get a mix of jumanji and Willy Wonka, than this might not be half bad. Agree with locked n loaded, I loved the game as a kid (but haven't played it in years).
