I used to be a big Adam Sandler fan, but I lost interest in the guy because his movie choices as of late has been really weird. I stopped watching Adam Sandler movies after “Punch Drunk Love” in 2002. “Punch Drunk Love” was a great movie, it was his best performance, but everything else he did after that film, what happened to him? I loved all of Adam’s comedies in the 90’s. I loved, “Billy Madison”, “Happy Gilmore”, “The Waterboy”, “Big Daddy” was good, and so was, “Anger Management”. Most of his new movie roles have been garbage lately and I have no interest in seeing, “Jack and Jill”.
He’s still a good guy and funny as hell, but I wish he would get back to choosing good movies again and him agreeing to do, “Candyland”, is even more questionable.
The Hollywood Reporter, reports.
I used to play the “Candyland”, board game a lot when I was a kid. I won’t judge the movie when not seeing the trailer yet though.
First Ridley Scott has been confirmed to direct the “Monopoly” movie as part of the huge deal with Hasbro making movies with studios, next here comes “Candyland” getting the greenlight by Universal Pictures. Universal has signed Kevin Lima to direct and Etan Cohen to write “Candyland” the board game about to make a live action film.
Kevin Lima is most well known for helming Disney’s “Enchanted” that starred Amy Adams. There is no plot/synopsis for “Candyland” yet, but Universal plans to make it a comedy and family oriented.
I’m betting your money that Lima will get Amy Adams to star the female lead in “Candyland”. Knowing how Lima did a wonderful job with “Enchanted”, I’m sure he won’t dissapoint in “Candyland” as well. He’ll put smiles on people’s faces in “Candyland” just like he did with “Enchanted”. I can see why Universal would want him. Lima is a perfect choice! Bring it on!
