Sony Pictures Planning CAPTAIN PLANET AND THE PLANETEERS Movie
Iron Man 3 star Don Cheadle has played the character in a few "Funny Or Die" sketches, but Sony Pictures are now nearing a deal to give Captain Planet and the Planeteers the big screen treatment. Read on for details!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Captain Planet and the Planeteers is now set for the big screen treatment from Sony Pictures. The studio is currently in final negotiations for the rights to the series which, " told the story of five teens from around the world that are given powers by Gaia, the Earth spirit, in order to protect the planet from the devastation of polluters. When their powers are not enough, the teens combine to summon a superhero named Captain Planet." Live-action adaptations have been attempted in the past, but none of them managed to get further than the script stage. With a modern day reimagining, Sony are clearly hoping to develop a new franchise from the 90s animated series and there's no denying that the issues faced by Captain Planet are more prevalent today than ever before. Mark Gordon (Source Code), Don Murphy (Transformers) and Susan Montford (Real Steel) will produce.
