Well, she sneaks around the world from Kiev to Carolina. She’s a sticky-fingered filcher from Berlin down to Belize. She’ll take you for a ride on a slow boat to China, tell me, where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Soon she’ll be on the big screen.
Walden Media, who have brought films of popular books like Charlotte’s Web and The Chronicles of Narnia series, have acquired the rights to make a live-action film based on the property Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?
Jennifer Lopez has signed on as a producer to the film, but while no deal has been made yet, Walden Media is developing it as a “potential starring role” for her, according to Deadline.
Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? started off as a computer game and a book in 1985. PBS made the series into a game show from 1991 to 1995, and it was also turned into an animated series on Fox from 1994 to 1999. The series has had several iterations of books and games ever since its initial release.
At the very least, hopefully the movie will keep the game show’s great theme song from Rockapella:
