POWERPUFF Script Leak Makes It Clear Why The Pilot Needed To Be Reworked

POWERPUFF Script <font color=red>Leak</font> Makes It Clear Why The Pilot Needed To Be Reworked

Following the news that The CW has decided to rework the Powerpuff pilot, the script for the current interpretation has reportedly leaked online, and it's... certainly something. Take a look...

Last night, news broke that The CW has decided not to move forward with the current incarnation of its live-action Powerpuff adaptation, with writers/executive producers Diablo Cody and Heather Regnier starting from scratch with a new take on the material.

Now, the original script has reportedly leaked online, and let's just say it's not exactly difficult to understand why they felt the need to go back to the drawing board with this one.

We knew this take on the classic kids' animated series would age-up the characters and put a more mature spin on the premise, but we weren't anticipating this level of adult content. Look, maybe there is a market for a Powerpuff show in which Blossom threatens to leak Buttercup's nudes before interrupting her sister's marathon sex session, but if it's going to work, it'll probably need to be a just a little better-written.

Just in case you think we're being a bit harsh, have a look at some of the excerpts in the thread below.

Maybe it would have been better in execution? Thankfully, we'll never have to find out.

As far as we know, stars Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron, Yana Perrault, and Donald Faison are staying on board for whatever this new (hopefully much-improved) take on Powerpuff turns out to be, but the show is still not guaranteed to move forward.
