"Candy Land" Moves to the Big Screen! The "Enchanted" and "Tropic Thunder" Connection! 


This is a sweet news from our friends at Universal Pictures!

The studio is bringing "Candy Land" to the big screen, and "Enchanted" director, Kevin Lima, is set to helm.

As you may know, "Candy Land" is a board game made specially for little kids, and the planned film version is a result of the deal Universal made with Hasbro.

Hasbro's properties include the upcoming films, "G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra" and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."

The script is being written Etan Cohen who gave us "Tropic Thunder."

This is an interesting and strong bunch of filmmakers, so "Candy Land" should have a good adaptation.

Judy Garland -- the Movie 


The Weinstein Co. is set to turn the life of tragic icon Judy Garland into a major Hollywood motion picture!

The studio has acquired the rights to the biography of the singer/actress called Get Happy: the Life of Judy Garland written by Gerald Clarke.

This is exciting because Clarke's biography of Truman Capote became the basis of the excellent 2005 flick "Capote" which won its lead, Philip Seymour Hoffman the best actor Oscar.

But who should play Garland? Come on, start pitching!
