MOVE OVER, LORD OF THE RINGS. HERE COMES CANDY LAND

The epic battle of our time.
post #2 of 23

Must be a new form of poppy plant with Heroin making its way around Hollyweird. An epic? Like Super Mario Brothers or Dungeon Siege In the Name of The King?
 

If so hire Uwe Boll, Paul W.S Anderson, Rob Marshall or hey lets get Alice In Wonderland Tim Burton to do it! I'm there opening night Hollywood executives you're the best!

"You shall not PASS...'Go'!"

 

Seriously, it's only a matter of time til Johnny Depp is starring in Tim Burton's Napkin: The Motion Picture.

Damn, they stole my pitch. I'm shopping around a great script. It's like Irreversible set in the world of competitive Sudoku.

They better hope they get this out before Django Unchained.

I cannot believe this is going forward.  Of all the stalled projects in Hollywood, this is getting funding.

Candyland already has a prestigious history of adaptations. Less we forget THE GREAT LOLLIPOP ADVENTURE? Epic.

And that one Katy Perry video featuring Snoop Dogg? Fierce!

I'm not putting anybody on with my comments on this thing. If is a straightforward fantasy epic that simply happens to made of sugar, I will absolutely fucking watch it. Pay full price with complete unironic excitement.

 

The only other way this thing could be great would be as a hand-animated feature film written & directed by Pendleton Ward. That would pretty much just be an Adventure Time movie though, so it would be a touch redundant.

Viggo Mortensen as Peanut Brittle!

... is kind of begging to be stop-motion, no? I'm thinking Pee Wee's Playhouse refrigerator or the hallucination in YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES. Or the custard/ear scene in DEAD ALIVE. Jelly gore and cream filling eveyrwhere.

I don't really have much to add.

 

But I've been laughing at this article for the past 10 minutes.

 

Thanks for the new sig.

If they really want to go for "LOTR Epic", they should hire a director with more vision.  I enjoyed Enchanted, but its big action finale left much to be desired.  You want people to care about sugar?  Get a director who knows how to sell it!

Whatever they do, it won't be as epic as Homer's legendary journey to THE LAND OF CHOCOLATE.

Wow, chocolate!  Half-price!

 

I enjoy skipping the way Homer does in that scene.  It's so LITrully gay!

This article and introducing Pee Wee's Playhouse to my daughter recently reminded me of this old trippy Fleischer cartoon...

 

 

9 out of 10 dentists agree that THE CHRONICLES OF CANDYLAND: The Rise of Gloppy will increase dentist visits 1000%!

Also, this should just kind of be in here...

I brought this exact bit up when I interviewed the screenwriters on Monday (for KUNG FU PANDA 2) and their response was "Exactly!" So who knows. Maybe this movie will be fun instead of a complete abortion.

If this movie becomes a huge hit, I demand that it become reality at Universal Studios or Disneyland.  And it'd better have edible structures!  I want to cavort, caper, and crunch with much gaiety!

No shit, right?  Stories like this one always make me think of this:
