candylandUnlike leaks about movies based on comic books, tidibits about Hasbro’s movies in the works are thrilling no one.

We’ve already known for some time that Ridley Scott is set to direct Monopoly from Universal Pictures. Lately we’ve heard that Ouija is set to be a Pirate’s of the Caribbean type of adventure movie. Still waiting to hear word about the planned Battleship movie.

Now we hear that Etan Cohen (of Tropical Thunder) is set to write, and Kevin Lima (of Enchanted) is set to direct, Candy Land.

And yet, from the online reactions I read, no one seems to be jumping for joy.

Funny thing is, all of these games have previously been made into (bad) movies. Just check IMDB.
