Hollywood’s obsession with making films about the most inane things possible continues, as The Wrap reports that we’re getting a bloody Pez movie. For those unaware, Pez is a popular candy that has been around for over 80 years, dispensed from the plastic heads of various characters from pop culture. There’s Star Wars, Batman, Marvel, Looney Tunes – you name it, chances are Pez has used its likeness.
Envision Media Arts (EMA) will develop the movie, with Cameron Fay (Brother in Laws) on board as writer. EMA CEO and founder Lee Nelson will produce along with the company’s president of TV and film, David Buelow.
“PEZ Candy is beloved by children and adults alike, with Cameron Fay we’ve created a world unique to Pez and a story that will touch the hearts of many,” said Nelson.
How a movie about a bunch of familiar looking heads that dispense sweets will work is anybody’s guess, but it’s worth noting that many scoffed when the The LEGO Movie was announced, and look how that turned out.
