The live-action adaptation of “Battleship” is only "loosely" based on the Hasbro game, but the writers of “Candy Land” are really trying to think outside of the box.
Although the board game is easy enough for kids who can't read, the writers are aiming to create something more action-packed.
“We envision it as ‘Lord of the Rings,’ but set in the world of candy,” co-writer Jonathan Aibel, who’s penning the script along with fellow “Kung Fu Panda 2” scribe Glenn Berger, told Entertainment Weekly.
“We don’t see it as a movie based on a board game," Berger said. Although the movie will have "characters from that world," it "takes the idea of people finding themselves in a world that happens to be made entirely of candy where there are huge battles going on,” Berger added. “We are going for real comedy, real action and real emotions at stake.”
Sounds like that rainbow-hued walk to the Candy Castle just got a lot more intense. What do you think of "Candy Land" as a sweeter "Lord of the Rings"?

Hello! it is little spam!

I actually think this could be a cute movie if done right and they should cast Caleb Cohen in the part of the little boy seen on the board game. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3735601/

We need a movie based on the video game Q-Bert!
Why not? It was a favorite game as a child, and I'll be able to watch it with my child when he/she is born. I wonder if it's kid friendly.
A Decided Lack of Creativity + MoneyGrubbing Producers + Ignorant American Public Willing to See Any Movie If It's Advertised Enough = BOX OFFICE HIT + DVD OFFER WITH HAPPY MEAL PURCHASE + SEQUEL !!! Woo-hooo! QE-Effin'-D!!!!!
Couple of dudes write Candyland movie, there was a Space Mountain movie, Clue movie, Operation movie (saw), Monopoly movie (Atlas Shrugged), Solitaire movie (Cast Away), Minesweeper movie (The Hurt Locker), D&D movie (D&D), Trivial Pursuit movie (Quiz Show), Chess movies (Searching for Bobby Fischer etc), there's a Go Fish movie (Just google "Go Fish Movie"), man is there any concept that *DOESN'T* have a movie based on it yet?
Ooh, here's one that's never been done. How about a Disney Musical about Child Soldiers in another continent?
What? They did that? Eddie Murphy? Mulan? Oh...
One Ringpop to rule them all, One Ringpop to find them, One Ringpop to bring them all and in the dark chocolate- chew them!
I financed this movie!
Oh come on, the best board game made into a movie is CLUE! You guys need to check it out. Def an old movie...but still a fabulous creation from a simple board game.
Lol.. jumprope movie. The jumprope comes alive and start strangling the person that's jumping the rope. Maybe all the botox that they keep pumping into their faces are going to their brains so that why they can't be creative anymore. They should consider hiring us, I bet we can come up with better ideas for movies.
dats just scary!!a 3 yr old game as a movie?wat sick person written dat?hollywood is just plain awful now!!
LOL Superhiro ; ) A jumprope movie : ) it probably wouldnt suprise us though if they did : )
Maybe...a movie about the game Operation? A good ol' horror flick.
How much do these guys get paid?
I wanna change careers.
Im already writing a script for Hungry Hungry Hippos.
Hopefully after the Huge success of this movie they will make a preque
My visionary script for Mr Toads Wild Ride proved a little too "intense" for the disney execs.
I'm expecting a jumprope movie anyday now. In 3d of course.
Disney already made a jumprope movie called Jump In
God is this what Hollywood has come to? Kids games for 3 to 5 yr olds turned into a movie? Who watches this cr*p? Remakes/sequels/3D movies are bad enough all on their own. But this? Hollywood has taken stupidity to a whole new level.
I doubt that, precious.
That's just...wrong. And scary. Who on earth would go see this movie?
And no Johnny Depp in the lead role, what is this world coming to?
as good as LOTR? they've totally lost their minds of they think a movie version of Candy Land is going to be anywhere even the remotest of remotely close to LOTR! what losers and what a lame movie concept...
Search for Charlie the Unicorn. THAT'S what this movie should be about.
Uhh... Candy Land the movie? -Shrug- Whatever. At least it's not another remake.
With those two cuties in the photo "CandyLand" is sure to feature much gayness. Perhaps "DandyLand" might be a better movie.
