You’ll Find Waldo at Universal


The Hollywood Reporter says that Universal Pictures has picked up the movie rights to the popular children’s books series “Where’s Waldo?” from Classic Media and is looking at making a live-action family film.

The book series was previously set up at Paramount and Nickelodeon, where John Schultz was attached to direct a script that had been worked on by screenwriters such as Adam Rifkin, Adam Cooper and Bill Collage.

The plot of that project revolved around Waldo, now 30, ending up traveling through time after accidentally activating a malfunctioning travel machine.
