Would You Go See A Movie Based on Candy Land?

This would be such a fun movie, right?  I’m sure the cinematic versions of the Candy Cane Forest and Gum Drop Mountain would be stunning, and just think about how neat it would be to cast – like, I bet Katy Perry would shit herself to be a part of this movie. Those were just my first thoughts though, maybe you’re a little edgier and think a Candy Land movie would be too cutesy and silly. But wait:

“We envision it as Lord of The Rings, but set in a world of candy. We don’t see it as a movie based on a board game, although it has characters from that world and takes the idea of people finding themselves in a world that happens to be made entirely of candy where there are huge battles going on. We are going for real comedy, real action, and real emotions at stake.”

That’s a quote from one of the writers, and if that doesn’t catch your attention, then I don’t know what’s going on in your heart.  In my heart, there’s a glorious image of precious Elijah Wood happily prancing through the Chocolate Swamp while being hunted by a group of orcs who are wearing tutus and toting lollipops.  And that’s why I’ll be eagerly awaiting this little piece of cinematic magic.
