Back in April, Dolphin Entertainment and Mattel announced that a live-action, feature-length film based on Mattel's Max Steel property was back in the works after the previous attempt (apparently with Twilight actor Taylor Lautner attached) went belly up. We know that Christopher Yost wrote the script and that Stewart Hendler will direct, but now The Tracking Board reckon the following actors are testing for the male and female lead roles. Noah Silver (The Borgias), Ben Winchell (Necessary Roughness) and Dylan Minnette (Prisoners, Lost) are testing to play Max. For the undisclosed female role there's Skyler Day (Parenthood, Ironside) and Skyler Samuels (The Nine Lives of Chloe King, The Gates). The story follows a teenager named Max, who gets imbued with an energy power called TURBO (Tachyon Unlimited Radiant Bio-Optimized) and is then partnered with Steel, a technological alien.

as long it's based on the old Max Steel and not the new one and the villain is the creepy looking dude with the robotic face and arm I'm fine :p
DarkSuperman - 12/10/2013, 3:15 PM
yeah the original max steel was 24 with super powers. This new one is for children.

But do y'all know bout that early 2000 max steel. That should be a movie

Looks like Tron For Kids. No thanks.

I was talking about making a film of the original Max Steel when I was a kid, and this was 13 years ago. Even decided it'd be a good idea to have James Avery play Jefferson Smith.

And Taylor Lautner will be the star
I remember my brother had the old Max Steel action figure.

The original show was a good part of my Saturday morning cartoon childhood. The new show sucks dick.
SpideyQuad - 12/10/2013, 6:37 PM
I thought Saturday morning cartoons were obsolete since the Cartoon Network. God I'm old

[frick] this movie because of the werewolf wannabe dude. I don't care if he isn't in it anymore, he used to was which means that the casting director sucks.
