Nostalgia Overload of the Day: Walden Media, the children’s film production company behind The Chronicles of Narnia series, has purchased the right to adapt Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? for the big screen.
Initial reports suggested that the role of the red-hatted rogue would be played by Jennifer Lopez, but it seems now that Lopez will merely produce the film through her Nuyorican Productions company.
According to Deadline, Walden wants Carmen Sandiego to be “National Treasure meets The Thomas Crown Affair.” A brief synopsis follows:
When the ACME agency’s greatest detective Carmen Sandiego becomes the world’s greatest thief, it’s up to her former partner to follow her clues and track her down. Their cat and mouse game leads the partner to confront a greater mystery: is Carmen really a thief or a hero?
Though the project is underway, its realization is not entirely guaranteed: Disney, which optioned the educational franchise in the 90s, had developed a film version for Sandra Bullock, but that’s as far as it got.
I will watch the hell out of this
Went to Lake Arrowhead last year around this time for some Oktoberfest and Halloween fun. Wish we could of fit that in again this year! (Photos via Chris)
It certainly was an interesting three years. Didn’t expect to be there that long. As nice as it is being by myself, I’ll miss Austin as well. Though now that he’s moved what seems like several states away, not sure if we’ll hang out ever again. Well, the friendship was good while it lasted :)
After three years and some change, Chris and I have finally left our high rise penthouse (any apartment on the top floor is a high rise… yes even if it’s on the third floor) and parted ways as roommates. It’s been a long and exciting ride and that apartment has so many memories packed into it’s…
Who doesn’t want a bar in their house? Well, now your dreams can come true. This beautiful, handcrafted bar can be yours for just the small price of $75! Just let me know (molnarcj @ mac dot com). Your life will be changed forever.
