Where’s Waldo


There’s good news in the film world. Sanity seems to have prevailed over madness at Universal and a proposed movie about a formerly popular children’s activity book called “Where’s Waldo?” is no longer on their schedule. It seems they just couldn’t find the right approach to getting it together. But don’t start celebrating yet, there’s also bad news. The only reason that proposed adaptation of “Where’s Waldo?” isn’t going to happen is because MGM has now acquired the rights to make the movie instead. Yes, there are multiple studio heads out there that think making Where’s Waldo? is a good idea.



What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a wild summer romp disguised as a prestige flick. We toss together some of the news that your brain needs to hold most tightly to for fear of losing it forever. Do you dare know what can’t be unknown? Since it’s going to be a bizarre (fiercely sexual) post tonight, we start off with the innocent pleasure of shoes. Custom painted movie shoes to be specific. For full disclosure, yes, PeregrinePaints over at Etsy is a friend of the site, but who cares? Her stuff is very cool, the work speaks for itself, and you can dictate exactly what you want painted on your kicks. Not a bad deal, especially for the super-fan who can’t understand why Nike hasn’t produced as an official El Topo sneaker yet.



So you’re not all that excited about a one-off SNL sketch becoming a feature-length film? If it’s R-rated, maybe you should be.



Everyone prepare to rise from the wasteland that you call your life and step into the glorious Promised Land of Reject Radio. It’s the first episode, and like any first time, there’s a little pinch, a nervous excitement, and you have trouble walking afterward. Was it good for you?



My absurd obsession with Where’s Waldo continues as I stumble upon a fantastic trailer where Waldo kicks some major ass. And then takes names. And then finds…himself.



Universal has snatched up a project that was in turn around that will adapt “Where’s Waldo?” for the big screen. Now, how exactly does one do that?
