In the past few years, there have been some odd toy products made into movies - in the sense of "They are making a movie out of that?". You can understand things like Transformers (the car/robot things), but what about board games like Battleship? That was an odd choice for the 2012 movie of the same name. The Lego movie proved very popular, and a sequel is on the way. The latest addition to the questionable thought process is a movie based upon Play-Doh. You read that correctly; a movie based upon a modelling compound.
JoBloNo, you’re not seeing things and as far as we know it's not still April Fools Day; the latest toy/brand/crumpled piece of newspaper to get the feature film treatment will be none other than that beloved childhood ball of coloured dough: Play-Doh. Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox is currently making a deal with Hasbro to bring about a live-action film based upon the toy brand. I'll give you a few moments to collect yourselves and then we'll move on.
