Toy Company Wham-O has signed with Talent Agency ICM so that their products can be developed into movies, TV shows, music, and online content.  ICM already represents gaming company Atari and has helped put adaptations of the video games Asteroids, Missile Command, and Rollercoaster Tycoon into the works.  ICM will work to get products like the Frisbee (which probably kills my “Pie Plate” script), Super Ball (“Do not taunt Super Ball”), and the Hula Hoop (“You know.  For kids.”) into the hands of hapless screenwriters who will then have to turn a child’s toy into a tentpole summer movie.  According to Heat Vision, Wham-O also has children’s toys that never took off like a do-it-yourself bomb shelter (be sure to cast Michael Shannon) and “instant fish”.

If you were wondering what was below Battleship and Ouija on the toy-movie-adaptation chain, this is it.
