Even if the Diary of a Wimpy Kid films being of a decidedly low quality in terms of writing and its leading child actors isn’t enough to see the franchise torpedoed by Fox, there’s another element that might force its hand: the kids in question don’t really fit their roles all that well anymore. Kids, and humans in general, have a nasty habit of aging, but kids are particularly difficult in that way as their physical changes tend to be a bit more profound. In the case the series’ lead Zachary Gordon, he’s at the point where he was arguably too old to play the role this time around in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, but there were so many other problems that an issue like that takes a backseat.
