"Where's Waldo?" Film in the Works

Posted: June 1st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"WhereSubmit Comment
Universal and Illumination Entertainment have acquired screen rights to turn "Where's Waldo?" book series into a live-action family film. The two studios will seek to create a movie with strong global appeal.

Written and illustrated by Martin Handford, the "Waldo" books have sold over 50 million copies worldwide, with complex full-page illustrated pictures of large crowd scenes in which the main character is somewhere hidden, dressed in a red and white shirt with a hat, glasses and a walking stick.

The series launched in 1987 in the UK, spawning a TV series, comic strip and video games.

i think finding him in the books is what made this series so much fun for me as a kid...but i just don't see this being THAT much of a successful movie...first bazooka joe, now this?...i don't want to imagine what other comic strips they're eyeballing next...because you know they're going to do all of them eventually
