New York (USA), Nov. 5 (ShowBizCafe.com) – We know this sounds like a joke, but I promise you, it’s all true. In recent years, large toy properties have attracted big name directors to bring their toys over to the big screen. An example is Ridley Scott who is in pre-production of ‘Monopoly‘ and Peter Berg who is on the final touches of ‘Battleship‘. Now we learn that CAA (the largest talent agency in Hollywood) is playing and making a movie of ‘Rubik’s Cube.’ The cube has an agent!
A Rubik’s Cube is a puzzle whose sides are divided into squares of one color that can change position. The objective of solving the puzzle is achieved by putting all the squares on one side of the cube with the same color.
Now pardon my lack of creativity, but seriously, can you tell me how these guys are going to make a film with quality and substance from this? All I can think of is the Hellraiser box that opened a door to hell. But that premise is now used.
CAA is one of the most powerful agencies in Hollywood, representing the likes of George Clooney and Oprah, so if anyone knows how to make a movie from a toy, it’s these guys. Richard Lovett, president of the brand of a Rubik’s cube, believes in the potential to make a movie about an iconic toy. However, the notion of making a movie about this toy feels absurd at this time.
Friends … I really think this will happen. For now, there are no more specific details on the movie, but I promise we’ll be following this story closely.
