Chicken Soup for the Soul Movie on Its Way


If you're tired of movies about robots fighting robots, well, be careful what you wish for: There's a Chicken Soup for the Soul movie on the horizon. Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertianment announced today that they've bought the rights to the sprawling inspirational franchise and have hired Brandon Camp to write a feature script, which will be "inspired by a variety of characters and stories from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series," according to the parties. Camp's previous credits include the 2009 Jennifer Aniston movie Love Happens, and the 2002 sci-fi drama TV series John Doe. The original Chicken book came out twenty years ago and has been followed by dozens and dozens of other titles, including, truly, Chicken Soup for the Soul: O Canada, 101 Heartwarming and Inspiring Stories by and for Canadians; Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Cat's Life: 101 Stories about All the Ages and Stages of Our Feline Family Members; Chicken Soup for the Woman Golfer’s Soul; and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Back Pain.
