Hasbro and Sony To Bring “Tonka Trucks” Movie
It’s time for movies to get tough—Tonka Tough.
At least that’s what Hasbro and Sony will attempt to do, as the two have teamed up to produce a movie based off of Hasbro’s Tonka Trucks.
No, you read that right. In this post-Battleship world we’re getting a Tonka Trucks movie.
More details after the break.
There’s no release date stated yet, but Sony Pictures Animation and Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions will make the adaptation. The film will be shot as a motion-capture feature and will have Fred Wolf (Grown Ups, Joe Dirt) penning the script. The Tonka Trucks movie is a part of a multiple film project between Hasbro and Sony. They are also producing adaptations of Risk and Candy Land (another Happy Madison production).
“In its 65 years, Tonka has become more than a toy or a brand — Tonka trucks are a rite of passage for kids all around the world,” said Bob Osher, president of Sony Pictures Digital Productions. “Time spent with these toys creates memories that last a lifetime as kids are inspired to play using the boundaries of their imagination. We look forward to creating a family friendly motion picture that brings the Tonka experience to life.”
Still waiting on that Hungry Hungry Hippos movie.
