Adam Sandler: Candy Land Movie in the Works?

Adam Sandler may be bringing Candy Land to the big screen!

The 45-year-old funny man is in final talks to “star in and have his Happy Madison Productions produce a movie based on the board game,” The Wrap reports.

Adam may also be co-writing the screenplay for Sony, which picked up the project from Universal.

“In a statement, Columbia Pictures President Doug Belgrad called Candy Land more than just a game – ‘it is a brand that children, parents and grandparents know and love.’ He said that it offers a larger than life part for Sandler,” the website adds.

    Don’t understand how companies can still green light movies like this. When will this stop!! Adam Sandler like Jennifer Aniston should stop making movies.

    I’ve been dreaming of a Candy Land movie for years! But a darker, Pan’s Labyrinth-esque version. Not some cheesy kids flick where Adam Sandler plays every goofy character… At least he’s interested in a movie that hasn’t already been made. Cheers to that!

    you really think ADAM SANDLER is gonna make a dark candy land movie? his punch drunk days are over and he is in full-on man-in-a-wig territory. too bad he used to be funny. now all he cares about is having a good time with his friends at the expense of humor, plot and integrity.

    Sounds cool, Adam is one of my favorite actors. I find about 80% of his movies turn out to be absolutely hilarious. But the ones that are not, are pretty awful to be honest. Here’s hoping it’s one of those good ones! =)
