Magic 8 Ball to Become an Action-Adventure Movie

Posted: April 28th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Magic 8 Ball to Become an Action-Adventure MovieSubmit Comment
Back in 2006, Universal Pictures was working with director Tom Shadyac (Bruce Almighty) to turn the Magic 8 Ball toy into a romantic comedy. Nothing came of that.

Now that every single toy is being turned into a feature film (Battleship, Ouija Board), Paramount Pictures has decided that it's the perfect time for a Magic 8 Ball movie. The studio separated from Shadyac and assigned its former production chief Brad Weston to head up the project.

NY Magazine has learned that the plan is to turn the Magic 8 Ball into an action-adventure movie similar to "National Treasure." And Weston has already hired screenwriters Jon Gunn and John Mann (Mercy Streets, Boo U.) to pen the script.

For those not familiar with the toy, it is basically an over-sized black-and-white billiard ball that gives one of twenty alternately affirmative, negative, or noncommittal answers.

Hey Hollywood, since your skating rapidly towards stupidity, why not have a cop buddy comedy starring the Magic 8 Ball and the Number 8 Pool ball and name it

" Behind the 8-Balls. "

Magic 8 Ball predicts " Hollywood doesn't have an original thought if it farted out their ass. "

@CC - Robot Chicken did a skit where CHutes and Ladders were cops. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson did the voices of the characters.

I would hope that this magic ball would have more than 8 quotes to shake up, or else "outlook definitely not good".
