Paul Feig, expert for rough R-rated comedy diamonds like Bridesmaids and The Heat, will change pace (especially in terms of rating) a little and produce the big screen adaptation of Peanuts, according to Deadline.
The director-producer commented on his new job with sweet words indeed:
Growing up, Peanuts was my Star Wars, Charles Schulz’s characters influenced everything in my career, especially Freaks and Geeks. I’m thrilled I finally get to be pals with Charlie Brown and Snoopy.
I got a tiny bit thrilled myself there...
Peanuts has a November 6, 2015 release date.
The animated comedy, based on Charles Schulz’s iconic comic strip, will be directed by Horton Hears a Who-director Steve Martino .
