Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade movie in the works

Get ready to see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade as you've never seen it before - as a full-length feature film.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, a movie is in the works about the annual event, in which giant balloon versions of all-time favorite cartoon characters like Snoopy, the Pink Panther and SpongeBob make their way through New York's Herald Square.

"We're aiming to make a four-quadrant, family-friendly film somewhere in that 'Night at the Museum,' 'Elf' sweet spot,” says producer Scott Glassgold, who is toying with the idea of having the floats come to life.

The folks at Macy's, meanwhile, are hoping the movie will become a holiday classic.

"We are always searching for the next 'Miracle on 34th Street,'" says Macy's senior vice president Robin Hall.

Would you see a movie about the Thanksgiving Day parade?

  3. Prison girl without panties float

    A float full of women just released from prison and a group of sissyboys. The Dom women could take turns urinating all over these sissyboys.

    I see the blog police are working again. Heaven forbid someone say something negitive about this crapola. If these are the type of people working in the restaurant business, I'll eat at home. Go ahead, delete this one. Losers!

    It could work if they make it a comedy in the same vein as "Best in Show" and "A Mighty Wind."

    I would like to see a float that features Doo Doo and Stinky Pieces from around the world. The float could be made out of domestic Doo Doo and have big globe with the countries represented by there own Stinky pieces.

    Proof that Hollywood has COMPLETELY run out of ideas... And they wonder why the volume of people going to see movies is falling!
