Some great Lovecraftian horror has emerged from the blackest depths of the deepest oceans, and slowly it makes its way towards our shores. With a ponderous and slow gait it urges forward, little by little, until all life and civilization is extinguished by fear and despair beyond human comprehension. Its name: Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Movie. It probably won’t be a death knell for humankind (although you never know), but Alcon Entertainment has indeed secured the rights for both a Chicken Soup for the Soul movie and TV show. For now, the only concrete plans involve the film. Deadline Hollywood reports that Brandon Camp, writer of Love Happens, will be handling the screenplay duties, while Jordan Kerner of the Kerner Entertainment Company will be producing alongside Alcon. Kerner’s previous credits include both The Smurfs and The Smurfs 2, while Alcon was behind the similarly sappy The Blind Side. No director has been announced as of yet.
