Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have acquired the rights to the top-selling children’s books “Where’s Waldo?” with plans afoot to craft a live-action flick out of its pages.

Written and illustrated by Martin Handford, the “Waldo” books have sold more than 50 million copies worldwide.
