Maybe I'm still awestruck over the fantastical world brought to life in Coraline, but for whatever reason I'm actually kinda excited by the idea of a movie based on the Candyland game. Speaking strictly visuals (not, of course, how they'll make a story out of a board game), it seems like the time is right to try something like this, and it might turn out to be amazing.
The Candyland movie being developed by Universal will be live-action, but there's still much they could do with it. It makes me think of the live-action Grinch movie which, say what you will about how it never should have been made, etc. — I still think it's visually cool. The Candyland project now has Enchanted director Kevin Lima attached, and a writer, too: Etan Cohen (not to be confused with Ethan Cohen, ha) who has written a few things, including two movies I never thought to put in the same sentence — Tropic Thunder and Madagascar 2. He also wrote this movie. Discuss.
