With two of the writers being Craig Schulz, Charles Schulz's son, and Bryan Schulz being Craig's son, I doubt the film

Yeah, on the excitement you have a point there, but this was more of a PR panel more or less
so they were probably under restrictions on what they could say on the movie.
Here is a quote from the article above, You're a Good Plan, Charlie Brown.
The cartoonist’s son had a short-format concept for a “Peanuts” film. And once he had the idea down, he turned to the third generation. “I was happy to show my son,” Craig says of Bryan Schulz, a screenwriter. “He showed me how to make it bigger — how to blow it up more — and he helped me put in structure.”
Craig Schulz, though, proceeded with caution. 2015 will mark the 65th anniversary of the launch of “Peanuts” by United Feature Syndicate, and it is dicey to tamper with the legacy of, and love for, Charles “Sparky” Schulz’s institution of a creation.
That was foremost in Craig Schulz’s mind as his seed of an idea began to bear fruit. “The time was right,” he says, “and we worked out a story, and we brainstormed.”
The “Peanuts” brain trust met with different Hollywood teams, laying the terms on the table. “If we’re going to do this project, it has to be under Schulz control — this is a Schulz film,” Craig says. “No one is going to grab and run with it. We need to have absolute quality control and keep it under Dad’s legacy. … You can’t bring people in from the outside and expect them to understand ‘Peanuts.’ ”
