“Peanuts” To Get Big-Screen Treatment

Peanuts, the long-running comic strip that introduced Snoopy and Charlie Brown to the world, is to get a big-screen outing with support from the family of its late creator, Charles Schulz. So many questions: will Peppermint Patty get a girlfriend? Will Charlie Brown find a friend? Twentieth Century Fox Animation’s Blue Sky Studios will release the film on 25 November 2015, in line with the 65th anniversary of Peanuts’ debut and the 50th anniversary of the TV special “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” Schulz’s son Craig and grandson Bryan will write the screenplay alongside Cornelius Uliano; the movie will be directed by Steve Martino. The latter’s credits include “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift,” a movie that you may not have seen but is the third highest-grossing film of 2012 after “The Avengers” and “Dark Knight.”
