Troll dolls get their own movie

Troll dolls may not be much to look at, but neither is Shrek the Ogre, and DreamWorks Animation has made major bank off his swampy story.

The studio has struck a deal with Dam Things - the company behind the Good Luck Trolls - to bring the squat, frizzy-haired, kinda creepy toys to the big screen.

THR reports that DreamWorks has hired brother and sister duo Adam Wilson and Melanie Wilson LaBracio to write the screenplay, and Dannie Festa will executive produce.

    Had they made this movie 20 years ago, I (and all my friends) would have been all over it. But...are those dolls even popular anymore? I haven't seen them in years.

    They should make it a live-action movie and cast folks like Don King, Howard Stern and Macy Gray.

    Unless the movie is "Transformers", a film isn't known to do well when based on a line of toys. I'm not sold on this idea yet.
