“Where’s Waldo” Finds Screenwriter
The big-screen version of Where’s Waldo has found a script writer. According to CinemaBlend, Todd Berger has been tapped to pen the script.
Created by illustrator Martin Handford, the books feature Waldo, dressed in a red-and-white shirt and carrying a walking stick, hidden in plain sight amid crowded scenes.
MGM picked up film rights in early November following unsuccessful efforts by Paramount/Nickelodeon and Chris Meledandri’s Illumination Entertainment. The Paramount/Nickelodeon project would have featured Waldo, a grown man, traveling through various eras after accidentally activating a time machine, but MGM is keeping the story of its project under wraps.
