Adam Sandler to star in "Candy Land: The Movie." Yes, this is something that's happening.

At this point, it's not even possible to come up with "joke" versions of these things - it's like there's no light left between "actual movie pitch" and "Robot Chicken sketch pitch" anymore. But yeah, Adam Sandler will star in a feature film version of the "Candy Land" board game.

The "interesting" thing, relatively speaking, is that Sandler pal Robert Smigel - late of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and "TV Funhouse - is coming along to do the script. He's a real talent... but I can't really see his general sense of humor (or Sandler's, for that matter) matching well with what Hasbro clearly will want to be a kid-friendly franchise-starter.

So basically, Sandler's going to half-ass another movie to earn himself and his friend some money again? I gotta hand it to him, smart mchoice though. The chances for product placement in this will put even Jack and Jill to shame.

I don't think that'll be the case so much if he isn't directing it.

There is no God. This is proof.

At this point the only consolation is to remind oneself that it is only a matter of time before Watching Paint Dry: The Movie is greenlit, the big studios are officially out of ideas, and the whole thing implodes leaving a ruinous landscape in which actual talents can stake their claims, dystopia-style.

The #1 movie in America was called "Ass." And that's all it was for 90 minutes. It won eight Oscars that year, including best screenplay.

Would be an interesting equation.

Stack all of the "good" talent to come out of SNL on one side (Eddie Murphy, Steve Martin, etc.) and stack all the "bad" talent on the other (Adam Sandler) and see if the good outweighs the bad.

ommenting on the announcement, Belgrad said, “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.”

I think I just threw up in my mouth.

About the only way something like this could possibly be good is if they gave it to Guillermo Del Toro or Tim Burton and then stayed out of it from there and let them do whatever they wanted with it.
