    Wally should be a time-traveller bounty hunter fighting against the revolution of machines, and he shall be played by Bruce Willis, Carmen Sandiego shall be his romantic interest.

    He hides in sets to trick the robots, he then emerges out of the nowhere and takes them out like a BAMF.

    There, Hollywood, the best movie ever. DO IT.

    I love Where's Wally/Waldo (the cartoon series included). A movie about him, if done right, would be great. The key phrase, however, is 'if done right'.

    I don't know about the other stuff you've said, but this bit I've quoted is one of the most amazing ideas I've ever come across. Have Christina Hendricks play her and we're all set.

    Also, screw this talk of Daniel Radcliffe. David Tennant for Waldo.

    The obvious route they can take to spice things up would be to make Waldo some kind of international man of mystery as an explanation as to why he's globe-trotting. Maybe, beneath his friendly and unassuming exterior, he's actually an Interpol agent or something like that.

    I don't know...I could actually see this working, depending how they play it.

    In a world where our nation is under threat from all quarters, under seige from all sides, the CIA must bring in a new kind of agent...

    An agent who can go anywhere.

    An agent who can blend in anywhere.

    An agent with stealth, the ability to avoid detection and the skill to complete any mission.

    An agent that will leave America's enemies wondering...

    Where's Waldo?

    Find him, this summer, at a theatre near you.

    Directed by Michael Bay, produced by M. Night Shymalan, based on a screenplay by Tom Clancy. Featuring Shia LeBeouf as "Waldo" and Patrick Stewart as The President. Original soundtrack by Justin Bieber and Clay Aiken.


    This does sound like a pretty stupid idea, but it sounds far more interesting than a Halo movie.

    In a world where corruption rules, one striped man is on the run...

    Seriously it's sounds like a parody made by CollegeHumor.

    you mean inexpensive, the halo film was going to cost WAY to much for it to be decent and microsoft wasn't going to lower the budget so it was canned.

    Seriously? Where's WALDO?

    I swear it's like I can hear Hollywood gasping for fresh air in the form of ideas.

    God DAMNIT, why the hell don't we have more guys like you in charge of Hollywood?

    Don't forget to add a cameo from Matt Lauer.

    I suppose Wally/Waldo could get lost in time and a group of kids have to track him down by following his travels through appearances in various old photos and paintings to see if they could spot him and free him.

    Wow, that article's highly pretentious. Guess they don't realize the reason they changed the name in America is because the word "wally" doesn't carry the same meaning it does in the UK, so the joke would be lost...

    Anyway...
