'Peanuts' Gang Gets Surprise Support for 2015 Movie

You’re making a Peanuts movie. You are bringing Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Woodstock and the animated gang to the big screen. You hire… the guy behind the foul-mouthed Bridesmaids and The Heat
OK, so Paul Feig might not be the obvious choice up front to bring Charles Schulz’ beloved animated series to theaters. But when you dig a little deeper, you’ll see he has the resume – and the chops – to get to the heart of the famous cartoon series. 
Variety reports that Feig will produce and “oversee” a Peanuts movie for 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios, the house responsible for the Rio movies, the Ice Age movies, Epic and Horton Hears a Who, to name a few.  
The 2015 release of the Peanuts movie will coincide with the 65th anniversary of the comic strip.
“This is a momentous step for the Peanuts brand. The beloved characters, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the whole gang resonate with multiple generations all over the world,” Neil Cole, CEO of Iconix Brand Group, said in a news release. “This film will give us a new medium in which to engage consumers globally and showcase the power of the Peanuts brand.”
Steve Martino will direct the Peanuts movie. His credits include Fox/Blue Sky’s Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!, and he codirected Ice Age: Continental Drift. The screenplay is by Craig Schulz and the writing team of Bryan Schulz and Cornelius Uliano. 
We all grew up on Charlie Brown. We have high hopes for the Peanuts movie. And we’re happy to point out that Feig, before he helmed the adult-minded comedies, worked on the hit sitcoms The Office, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Undeclared and Freaks & Geeks
It’s the holidays. Enjoy these Peanuts classics as you get ready for Snoopy goodness in 2015!
