MGM: 'Where's Waldo' to go live-action
MGM announced plans today to make a live-action family adventure based on Martin Handford’s popular children’s book series Where’s Waldo? “We are thrilled to be bringing the search for Waldo to the big screen,” said Jonathan Glickman, MGM’s Motion Picture Group President. “We look forward to making a worldwide adventure that will appeal to Where’s Waldo? fans of all ages.” Classic Media, the production company who holds the rights to Waldo, will jointly oversee the project with MGM, and Handford’s business partner, Mike Gornall, will serve as executive producer with Classic’s co-CEO Eric Ellenbogen.
