Hollywood, You BLOCKHEAD !



Good Grief ! As if Hollywood hasn't run out of ideas already, 20th Century Fox Animation plans on bringing Charlie Brown and the Gang to theaters.. The following, is how it's been posted by the L.A Times [below];  
"Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus and the gang are coming to the big screen, as 20th Century Fox Animation and its Blue Sky Studios unit announced Tuesday that they have acquired the rights to Charles M. Schulz's iconic "Peanuts" comic strip.The planned movie, the product of an agreement between the studio and Schulz's heirs, is scheduled to arrive in theaters Nov. 25, 2015. Steve Martino, who directed Fox's "Ice Age: Continental Drift" and "Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who," is to direct from a screenplay by Craig Schulz, Bryan Schulz and Cornelius Uliano. Craig Schulz is the famous cartoonist's son, and Bryan Schulz his grandson."We have been working on this project for years," Craig Schulz, president of Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, said in a statement. "We finally felt the time was right and the technology is where we need it to be to create this film."
Truthfully, I don't know what I think about this.. We know that it's going to be CGI animation [considering we haven't seen an actual 2D animated movie in forever!] & it's going to be directed by the same guy who did Horton Hears A Who and the Ice Age movies. Luckily however, the screenplay is being co-written by Charles M. Schulz's [The original Peanuts creator] heirs. Hopefully, it will be done well, as they hopefully will be able to follow through with how their past family member wanted it to be ? Either way, I'm worried as all hell for this; I'm slowly losing my faith in Hollywood- assuming I haven't already. What do you guys think? Do you think it'll be done well? are you worried about this version of Charlie Brown and the Gang? Or are you in good faith that this is going to be done well? Sound off in the comments, or let me know on the Facebook page ! CHEERS
