Magic 8 Ball movieA feature film based on a trivial toy from the '80s? All signs point to yes.

Vulture is reporting that Paramount is moving forward with plans to build a "sort of live-action 'National Treasure'-style action-adventure movie" around the Magic 8 Ball, the liquid-filled, fortune-telling apparatus that hit its Zenith as a piece of American kitch in the 1980s.

Title? 'Magic 8 Ball: The Motion Picture.' (Why not?)

However, the most surprising thing here isn't that Paramount appears, from all reports, 100 percent serious about its plans -- the studio has hired screenwriters Jon Gunn and John Mann to put together a story -- but rather that those plans have actually been in the works for four years.
