Finally, a "Gargoyles" movie...sort of
Disney is kind of making a movie about the bad ass living statues from the 90's and a veteran comic book movie producer is on board!
According to Cinemablend, David Elliot and Paul Lovett are writing this bad boy which is being produced by none other than Lauren Schuler Donner. She's produced all the X-Men movies and a few other classics such as "Mr. Mom," and "St. Elmo's Fire".
It's a bit confusing how this film will play out since it apparently is NOT based on the cartoon, yet is about living gargoyles which as you may or may not recall, was pretty much the premise of the 90's classic.
In my opinion, "Gargoyles" was second only to "Batman" as far as gritty kid cartoons go. There was a particularly good episode where the police woman, Alisa, is shot by a Gargoyle by mistake, this dealt with the seriousness guns, another episode talked about literacy.
At any rate, let's hope this materializes and ends up being cool.
