"Kung Fu Panda" Writers to Pen "Candyland" Movie

Posted: March 28th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Kung Fu Panda" Writers to Pen "Candyland" MovieSubmit Comment
"Kung Fu Panda" writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger have been hired to pen the script for Universal Pictures' "Candyland," which is based on Hasbro's popular board game.

The movie is part of Universal's six-year deal with Hasbro and has a story centered around finding the lost king of Candy Land. The players wind their way through enchanted lands such as Candy Cane Forest and Gum Drop Mountain, see characters such as Princess Frostine and Gramma Nutt as well as the evil Lord Licorice who can make players lose a turn.

Kevin Lima (Enchanted, Tarzan) is attached to direct "Candyland," which is envisioned as a live-action epic adventure.

This is completely, f*cking absurd.

I thought Hollywood had lost it's mind when it announced a feature-length movie based on the BATTLESHIP boardgame... but this?

If people are going to invest huge dollars into "game-based" movies... how about something cool like the 1981 HP LOVECRAFT based RPG "Call of Cthulhu?"

Well, that's a pretty good indication it won't be ass feces ridden as "Larry The Cable Guy, Health Inspector", but not as Academy Award Worthy as " Ernest Goes To Jail".

I just hope it's so full of candy and junk food references that I get cavities just watching it.
