Captain Planet: The Movie?

 

Because eventually every ‘toon and toy-based property must attract the attention of filmmakers looking for likely new franchises/merchandising bonanzas, the adventures of animated environmentalist superhero Captain Planet are now being developed as live action pic.

 

Executives at the US Cartoon Network have reached out to Transformers producer Don Murphy and partner Susan Montford to kick off work to bringing the blue-hued, green-haired hero to life.

 

First bursting on to small screens in 1990, Captain Planet and the Planeteers featured the muscular world-saver and his team taking down eco-villains across six seasons of ‘toons.

 

“The messages of Captain Planet are even more relevant today,” said Stuart Snyder, president of Turner Broadcasting System Inc.’s Animation, Young Adults and Kids Media division in a statement picked up by The Hollywood Reporter. “We feel this team can bring the world’s first eco-hero to life in a powerful motion picture that is not only pertinent but entertaining.” Presumably without adding, “Also, we really think it can sell lots of toys…”

What a load of shit. All the crap toys from the 80's are getting big budget movies, like shitty Transformers, the toys only retards played with, yet no big budget He-Man movie even though that was THE most popular toy line and cartoon of its era.

 

Lame. As. F*CK!

Might be because the last one sucked? Even if it did have her from friends and Dolph Lundgren.

Um if Im not mistaken, the first property that made news for getting bought to be turned into a big budget movie after transformers was a hit, was Masters of the Universe.

They've been banging on about a MOTU movie for years, its "in development" which means its going nowhere. 3 Transformers movies have been released since they started development on a He-Man movie. Load of crap.
