Adam Sandler to Star in "Candy Land" Movie

Adam Sandler to Star in "Candy Land" MovieSubmit Comment
Columbia Pictures, Happy Madison and Hasbro are developing a live-action movie based on the best-selling "Candy Land" board game that has Adam Sandler attached to star. Kevin Lima (Enchanted) is attached to direct the project with Sandler and Robert Smigel in talks to write the screenplay.

"'Candy Land' is more than just a game. It is a brand that children, parents and grandparents know and love," said Columbia. "The world of 'Candy Land' offers an extraordinary canvas upon which to create a fantastical, live-action family adventure film with a larger than life part for Adam."

"Candy Land" is one of the best known games of all time. Created in 1949, it has been played by generations of families. In the game, players go on a magical journey through fantastical lands made of candy, sweets, and ice cream: the Peppermint Forest, the Gum Drop Mountains, and the Lollypop Woods. Along the way, players encounter such characters as Princess Frostine, Lord Licorice, Mr. Mint, and King Candy.

Bit misleading headline.

I thought Adam Sandler was going to be hacked to death by the "Candyman".

How dare you get my hopes up Alex!!!!

Any this film has already been done twice...
