Good grief Charlie Brown, it looks like you're getting your own movie!

Arguably the most popular and most beloved comic strip of all time (my personal favorite happens to be "Calvin and Hobbes") is getting it's own full length feature film as Charles Schulz' classic "Peanuts" is coming to the big screen. Iconix Brand Group in association with Peanuts Worldwide has announced that Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Woodstock and the rest of the Peanuts gang will hit theatres in 2015 and will be will distributed by and produced by 20th Century Fox and animated by Fox's CGI company Blue Sky Studios. Craig Schulz, Charles M Schulz's son and President of Charles M Schulz Creative Associates had this to say:

"We have been working on this project for years. We finally felt the time was right and the technology is where we need it to be to create this film. I am thrilled we will be partnering with Blue Sky/Fox to create a Peanuts movie that is true to the strip and will continue the legacy in honor of my father."

The "Peanuts" movie will be directed by Steve Martino who also directed other notable Blue Sky Studios animated films "Horton Hears A Who" and the most recent "Ice Age: Continental Drift". The 2015 release date for the "Peanuts" movie will coincide with the 65th anniversary of the debut of the comic strip and the 50th anniversary of one of my all time favorite Christmas specials "A Charlie Brown Christmas Special".

But we want to know what you guys think. Are you excited for a Charlie Brown movie? Do you think Fox and the Charles M Schulz group can do the comic strip justice? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
