The Magic 8 Ball Movie Hollywood Has In Development Will Probably Not Be As Inventive As The Magic 8 Ball Movie You And Your Friends Dreamed Up In Third Grade

jokes that illustrate themselves dept. The Magic 8 Ball — the plastic fortune teller that used to liven up slumber parties with its suspended-in-liquid predictions of the future — will be the basis for a live-action film thanks to a freshly struck deal between Mattel, which manufactures the ball, and Paramount. Every time I try to think of a joke to pair with this piece of news, my brain says, "REPLY HAZY, TRY AGAIN." Because what else can you say, really? Except "OK, I give up. You win, world"? [Pic via]

I hope this movie is animated on an Etch-a-Sketch.

In 3-D! Don't forget the 3-D.

Jesus. Talk about a space/time paradox.

I was hoping for a The Hustler/The Prestige mash-up

Not that kind of 8 Ball.

It's a Scorsese picture.

Doesn't "MacGruber" now sound infinitely more appealing?

Can I get a 2-for-1 on tickets to this and the Candyland movie?

I only see movies about toys from my youth in 3-D. Get on that Paramount.

When I think of that title I just think about a buddy comedy about a fantastic coke odyssey. Harold Ramis Presents: Magic 8 Ball. The period costume gags will be in full effect.

I can't wait for 'Hungry Hungry Hippos' on Animal Planet.
