Writer Hired For Live-Action BEN 10 Adaptation

Up-and-coming Rampage scribe Ryan Engle has been brought in to work on Ben 10, Silver Pictures’ big-screen take on the hugely popular Cartoon Network franchise about a boy who can transform into 10 different monsters thanks to an alien watch.

We heard some time ago that Joel Silver - producer of, among many others things, Sherlock Holmes, V For Vendetta, and the Matrix trilogy - had signed on to develop a live-action feature film based on Cartoon Network's Ben 10 sci-fi franchise, with an eye toward distribution through Warner Bros. The show's creator gave us an update a while ago, but aside from that all had been quiet since. But now THR report that the movie has a new writer - Ryan Engle, who is also working on New Line’s adaptation of the Rampage video game and New Regency’s The New West, which is based on a comic from Black Bull Media. Engle will work off of the script by Albert Torres (Henry Poole Is Here).

Sounds interesting. I might just watch it if the trailers are good.

Another Ben 10 Live action movie?
The first live action film for TV was terrible, why now another?
I don't understand Hollywood, why they want to bring every animated series to big screen?

@BlackMax88 those were horrible because they were tv movies. Most all TV movies suck.

I think this might turn out well.

Well, besides the studio execs who want to milk it for cash.

I bet Michael Bay wants his hands on this film because you know he likes ruining childhood memories.

Ben 10 is so two years ago - ask any kid under eight, and they'll be all about Ninjago now.

Too late.

They have already done to much, there's been the Original series,Alien Force,Ultimate Alien and the new one Omniverse and two live action tv movies already.

The movies sucked shit and Ben 10 has aged with crap tons of useless cartoons for toys.

Don't we already have an existing live action Ben 10?

This one could be done better...hopefully.....and maybe the animation and cgi for the graphics will make the aliens look more realistic
shamo - 2/21/2013, 8:49 AM
we'll see.

They've been milking the Ben 10 franchise since Alien Force. I just stopped watching after a while. Then came Ultimate Alien, and Omniverse.... Who knows what's next?! Point is, it's lost it's charm. I would rather see this franchise die than to have a film.

I loved the original Ben 10 tv show. all the ones after that were shit though. I think a movie would be awesome if done right. The TV movies were kind of crappy except for Lee Majors as Grandpa Max, I liked that.

Ben 10 Movie Reboot. ...¡¡¡NOW!!!
Funsize - 2/21/2013, 2:13 PM
I hope its only on the original show because that's the only ben 10 show I liked growing up.

Screw you guys, show is beast. Mature ben is much better than younger ben imo.

How the [frick] is WB going to justify doing a movie about a damn cartoon that has only been around a few years, but they can not get out any other main DC characters??!

Yea I watched it alot when I was younger (the original) all the rest following that were poop. Poop animation, poop storylines and poop character development plus the concept simply lost it's appeal. I think this new movie would be rad though....i think....
