With Hasbro pursuing entertainment venues more aggressively in recent memory(like the upcoming HUB venture with Discovery Channel), it might not be a surprise to know that they are planning a movie called Hasbro Factory. It seems like a combination of popular movie titles “Night in the Museum” and “Toy Story” only with Hasbro’s toys.
Pajilba was able to obtain information by The Hollywood Cog, pertaining to Hasbro Factory:
What better way to exploit all of the Hasbro miscellanea than to rip off Night of the Museum? We’ve learned exclusively, via The Hollywood Cog, that that’s exactly what Paramount and Hasbro are doing: Developing a movie called Hasbro Factory, which is being described as Night at the Museum inside a Hasbro Factory, which also makes it something akin to Toy Story with only Hasbro Toys. The details we have are scant — it’s out to writers at the moment. We don’t even know which toys will make it into the final movie, or if the board games on which other movies are being based will make crossover appearances, but in either respect, it’s really silly to be talking about the possibility of the Battleship Board Game making an appearance in a movie with the Play-Doh man. But that’s the state we’re in right now.
In addition, Pajilba provided a heads up on other movies in development, based on Hasbro toylines:
Hasbro’s production company additionally has a number of other projects in development, including movies based on Battleship, Micronauts, Risk, Stretch Armstrong, Ouija, Candy Land and Clue. (Two other products, M.A.S.K. and Jem, we know also have separate movies in the works).
Hasbro hasn’t forgotten about MASK, anyone remember the GI Joe 25th Anniversary Matt Trakker figure? Which toylines and characters would you like to see in Hasbro Factory? Do you think this movie has a lot of potential?
