What's new on Hollywood's film industry is that Sony Pictures Animation has acquired film rights to the classic children's book "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs".

The animation flick, which the studio is now developing, will be based on the illustrated book by Judi Barrett and Ron Barrett which imagines a fanciful world where it rains juice and snows mashed potatoes and spaghetti.

"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" follows the story of a scientist who tries to solve world hunger only to see things go awry as food falls from the sky in abundance.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are both being tapped to direct. Details on the release date has yet been announced, so keep it here for further information.
