WHERE’S WALDO Finds A Writer

While a Where’s Waldo movie may sound ridiculous, it really is in development and now it has a writer.

According to THR, Todd Berger has signed on to the project to turn the popular books into a working script. Berger is known for writing the Black List script for the puppet crime mystery The Happytime Murders, which is in development at Lionsgate with Cameron Diaz attached.

Where’s Waldo was created by illustrator Martin Handford. Hopefully you already know this, but for the uninitiated, the books feature Waldo, dressed in a red-and-white shirt and carrying a walking stick, hidden in plain sight amid crowded scenes.

MGM picked up the rights to the title in November, Paramount/Nickelodeon attempted to get the project earlier but the deal fell through. Nickelodeon’s plan was to have Waldo travel to different moments in time by accidentally activating a time machine.
MGM has said nothing about the plot for their version.

Berger is now wrapping up It’s a Disaster, a comedy he wrote, directed and stars in with Julia Stiles, David Cross and Rachel Boston.
