Earlier this week, we learned that Peter Berg will be directing a movie based on the board game Battleship. A couple of years ago, I joked about other potential films based on my childhood toys, but now I'm approaching the matter with a whole new attitude. This is no longer a laughing matter; these projects are going forward into production. Don't Break the Ice: The Movie may be just around the corner.
The Battleship movie sounds like it's going to be pretty heavy — ship fleets engaged in violent battle and what not — but I'd rather explore the lighter side of the genre. Personally, I've always been curious about what the peppermint forest from Candy Land would actually look like, and I'm sure there's some exec in Hollywood who's already dreaming up some amazing, 3-D, sweet, sweet world for me. What about you — no matter how far-fetched, what board games would you like to see on the big screen?
