Cohen, Lima Take a Bite Out of Candy Land


Universal Pictures has tapped Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder) to write and Kevin Lima (Enchanted) to direct a live-action feature based on the Hasbro board game.

According to Variety, the project is the first film to emerge from the deal Universal made last February with Hasbro, whose properties are the basis for the summer tentpole films G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner is producing alongside executive producer Christopher Chase.
