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.  

Craig Schulz said the family has been working on the project for years. "We finally felt the time was right and the technology is where we need it to be," he said, adding that the movie will be "true to the strip and will continue the legacy in honor of my father."
