Kung Fu Panda Writers Visit Candy Land


Universal’s Candy Land film is moving forward with writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berg (Kung Fu Panda and the upcoming Kung Fu Panda 2) coming aboard to tackle the latest draft of the script, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.

Kevin Lima, who was first attached to the project back in 2009, is still set to direct the film, based on the Hasbro board game about a fantasy world made of sugary treats.

Previously, Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder) and Chris Morgan (Wanted) worked on the script for the project, which still has no official start date. The film is one of many planned board game adaptations, the others which include Ouija, Monopoly, and Battleship.
