/Film reports that Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, one of my all-time favorite childhood books, is being adapted into a feature film.
It will be a 3D animated feature (I can’t wait to see the meatballs jump right out of the screen and into my retinas), featuring the voices of Anna Farris (The House Bunny) and Bill Hader (SNL). But even better, the inimitable Mr. T will also be lending his considerable vocal talents.
I really hope they get this thing right and don’t screw too much with the story or tone. In many ways, the book inspired my current interest in food, and I wouldn’t want this sacred text drowned out by a cacophony of irrelevant pop culture references.
