Sony Develops Movie About TONKA Trucks

Who said they have run out of ideas?


Because super-sized sea vessels, life-sized cars that transform into kick-a** robots, and prospective realistic games of Monopoly and Legos didnít quite satisfy a non-existent hankering for seeing childhood games turned into blockbusters, Sony Pictures announced Monday a movie featuring Hasbroís TONKA trucks is in the works.

2. So Cars with Tonka Trucks and probably a tad of Bob the Builder.

Disclaimer I've never seen Bob the Builder and am only vaguely aware of his existence as some sort of British guy who works construction or something, he might be in the mob I'm just sayin' is all.

3. This might actually work if they do it right.

If they make if for kids instead of making it for adults it could be very successful. One could say "Cars" was about Hot Wheels and it brought in nearly a quarter billion domestically.
