Chutes and Ladders would make a great action flick.

Does anyone know if this will be considered canon within the Candyland mythology?

Hey, they had a Clue movie...so, why not?

But that was made as a joke and nothing more. How can you make a movie out of Candy Land?

good one.  you've been sigged my friend.

tell me, is uwe boll involved?  this could be a good outlet now that game movies have been denied him.  a whole range of board game based movies would be right up his alley.

next stop:  Trouble, the Movie.  starring sarah michelle gellar as the woman with a magic cube in her hand

Don't get me wrong - I loved Clue too. But it just sorta took the 'license' and did what they did with it.

just when you thought it was dead:

Quote
    CULVER CITY, Calif., January 31, 2012 – Columbia Pictures, Happy Madison and Hasbro, Inc. are in final talks to develop Candy Land, a live action movie based on the bestselling Hasbro board game with Adam Sandler attached to star, it was jointly announced today by Doug Belgrad, President of Columbia Pictures, Hannah Minghella, President of Production for Columbia Pictures, and Brian Goldner, Hasbro President and CEO.  Kevin Lima (Enchanted) is attached to direct the project for the studio with Sandler and Robert Smigel are in talks to write the screenplay.

    Commenting on the announcement, Belgrad said, “Candy Land is more than just a game. It is a brand that children, parents and grandparents know and love. The world of Candy Land offers an extraordinary canvas upon which to create a fantastical, live-action family adventure film with a larger than life part for Adam. We are thrilled to partner with Hasbro and Happy Madison on this project.”

    “The creative talent on board for this movie is amazing and we are excited to bring alive the world of Candy Land for kids and families everywhere,” Goldner added. “Sony/Columbia has been a wonderful creative partner as we develop another of our games, Risk, for the big screen. We are looking forward to working with Sony/Columbia and Adam Sandler and his team at Happy Madison Productions on this film.”

    Candy Land is one of the most beloved and best known games of all time.  Created in 1949, it has been played by generations of families. In the game, players go on a magical journey through fantastical lands made of candy, sweets, and ice cream: the Peppermint Forest, the Gum Drop Mountains, and the Lollypop Woods.  Along the way, players encounter such iconic characters as Princess Frostine, Lord Licorice, Mr. Mint, and King Candy.

    The project will be produced by Goldner (Transformers) and Hasbro’s Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Motion Pictures, Bennett Schneir (Battleship) along with Happy Madison Productions.  At Columbia, development of Candy Land will be overseen by Sam Dickerman.

This only makes me realize that Hollywood has fallen so far down the rabbit hole that the entire lot (about 99% of those involved in movies and about 75% of those involved in TV) should be fired and never allowed to work in TV or Movies again.  Ever.  Hollywood as a whole needs a new start because it's clear they are no longer sane.
