Peeps Movie

You know those marshmallow Peeps that we love to eat at Easter? They're heading for the big screen. That's right! They're getting their own movie. American film director, producer, actor, and writer, Adam Rifkin has secured the movie and TV rights to the sugary treats and will be providing the screenplay.

Fresh on the heels of the Lego movie, yet another colourful staple of your childhood looks to be headed for Hollywood! A deal has officially been inked for the development of a feature film about everyone's favourite Springtime candy, marshmallow Peeps. The full-length animation feature will adapt Peeps into a Lego Movie-esque family epic set the night before a Peeps diorama contest when a wayward Peep gets misplaced and must adventure through the fantasy lands of different-themed dioramas before the contest’s judging begins.

Originally created in 1952, Peeps have become a mainstay of Easter baskets and are now available in a number of different flavours and varieties.

Will this movie be on your family's 'must-see' movie list?
