And You Thought The Candy Land Movie Couldn't Get Any Better...

... and by better I mean worse, and by worse I mean now that the licensing deal between Universal and toy company Hasbro has ended, Sony has snatched up the Candy Land board game movie project -- you know, the one like "Lord of The Rings, but set in a world of candy" -- as a vehicle for none other than Adam Sandler. Said Columbia prez Doug Belgrad: "Candy Land is more than just a game. It is a brand that children, parents and grandparents know and love. 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. We are thrilled to partner with Hasbro and Happy Madison on this project." [THR]

    Trying very hard to make only positive comments. This is not making it easy.

  • MartiniShark says:

    Belgrad went on to say, " . . . This is such an obvious and can't-miss project - one that basically assures profitability and a surging stock price after it opens - that one has to wonder why nobody has made a movie based on the 75 year old board game. (Wait) What the hell did we just buy?!?!?!"

  • Kent says:

    Adam Sandler in a movie based on Candyland?! That's almost as bad as....nope, nothing is as bad as this idea.

  • The Winchester says:

    Given the 1-2 punch of humanity loss known as Bucky Larson and Jack & Jill, this can only be viewed as a step up for Happy Madison.

    Honestly, this doesn't sound as horrible as anything they've put out in the past 3 years.

    Unless Sandler decides to play the main character AND a gummy version of himself.

    From now on, we must check every announced Adam Sandler project to see if it appears in the list of ideas that Eric Cartman pitched to Hollywood executives as AWESOME-O. It's going to happen. Soon.

  • Elias says:

    They've finally made a movie too horrible to mock....(starts slow clap).

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my friend were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such fantastic information being shared freely out there…
