'Play-Doh' Movie is Coming Soon

Hollywood is attempting to bring a 'Play-Doh' movie.

Hollywood is either running out of ideas or they know something I don't know because, Hollywood executives are strongly considering a 'Play-Doh'. As part of Hasbro and 20th Century Fox, producers are planning a Play-Doh. Paul Feig, the director of the upcoming Ghostbusters female reboot, is attached to direct the new 'Play-Doh' movie. From Deadline:
Feig, coming off the Melissa McCarthy-Sandra Bullock comedy Heat, is prepping to release the Fox comedy Spy and he’ll next direct a new Ghostbusters at Sony with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Hasbro approach Feig and Chernin and they spent a long time coming up with a take for a feature, and then turned Micallef loose on the script.
Deadline compares this new 'Play-Doh' movie to the wildly successful feature film, 'The Lego Movie' which maybe a stretch.
Before you start writing a catty comment about how Play-Doh isn’t a movie and Hollywood has run out of ideas, remember it’s the same one you wrote when Warner Bros began planning movies based on LEGO. There, the talented team of Phil Lord & Christopher Miller found a disruptive movie in those building blocks that cost $60 million, grossed $658 million worldwide, and hatched not only a sequel but spinoffs.
It seems hard to believe that movie producers can actually make a movie out of a clump of clay. But, stranger things have happened in the film industry. What do you think?
