It's like Hollywood is playing a game with itself to try and make a film out of the most uncinematic objects hidden in the aged wrinkles of western nostalgia.
And we're all losing.
PEZ, you know those cheap, terribly difficult-to-load dispensers that offer chalky, semi-tastless candy out of some recognizable character's throat, is coming to the big screen.
According to Hitflix
Envision Media Arts has entered into an agreement with PEZ Candy Inc. to bring those character heads to the big screen, with Cameron Fay ("The Three Stooges" 2012 movie) primed to pen the script.
"PEZ Candy is beloved by children and adults alike," EMA CEO and founder Lee Nelson said in a statement. "With Cameron Fay we've created a world unique to Pez and a story that will touch the hearts of many."
Yes the inanimate devises that you collected for six months when you were seven will finally grace multiplexes everywhere. Maybe they will come to life and save a young boy from the sadness that accompanies his parent's divorce? Maybe they will team up and convince other toys who come to life that nothing beats motionless inactivity? Maybe it will be a 90-minute still shot of PEZ dispensers laying on someone's carpet?
We can only wait and see!
