You're STILL a good man, Charlie Brown -- not to mention box-office gold. Peanuts Worldwide, a joint venture with Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, will release a yet-to-be-titled film about Charlie, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Peppermint Patty et al. on Nov. 25, 2015, 50 years after the premiere of the holiday TV classic "A Charlie Brown Christmas."
"Peanuts," the most popular comic strip of all time, was created by Minneapolis native Charles Schulz, who died in 2000. His son Craig, head of CMS Creative, has written the screenplay along with his own son, Bryan, and will produce. Steve Martino, who co-directed "Ice Age: Continental Drift," will direct the film, to be distrubuted by Twentieth Century Fox.
