    "Thundercats" movie finally happening!

    From SHH!

    Thundercats Headed for the Big Screen

    Warner Bros. has optioned a Thundercats script by new screenwriter Paul Sopocy to turn the popular 1980s animated series and toy line into a live action feature.

    Variety says Warner-based Paula Weinstein will produce through her Spring Creek Productions, along with Dick Robertson and Lew Korman.

    Thundercats revolves around a group of humanoid cats (with feline names like Lion-O, Tygra, Panthro and Cheetara) who must flee their planet of Thundera after it's destroyed. Once crash-landing on another planet, Third Earth, they must thwart Mumm-Ra, an evil sorcerer, bent on killing them off.

    Sopocy has written the script as an origin story expanding on the major heroes and villains from the animated series, with the plot focusing on Lion-O coming of age as the leader of the Thundercats.

    Warner Bros. recently teamed with Joel Silver to produce a live-action He-Man movie, based on the toy and cartoon franchise, as well as a feature based on the DC comic book Teen Titans.
    So, for those of you who didn't think that "Thundercats" is a bankable franchise and this movie will probably bomb hard, raise your hand? *raises hand*

    This just spells disaster. Thoughts?

    This would be next to impossible to do live action. The makeup alone will be more expensive than the entire operating budget of the POTC movies.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I'm burned out on all these superhero / comic book / cartoon / Disney ride movies.

    Enough already.

    I concur with Caesar.

    Y'know, now that I think about it, it won't happen.

    Once Transformers bombs, studios will kill plans for any other movies based on 80s toylines.

    I hope you're right Caps...but one would think the same could be said for Hulk movies and they're doing another one of those already.

    You think that cool looking Transformers movie is going to bomb? Why would you think that? It looks sooooo cool! Specially how they all look so alien!

    I would hate to see it do bad and then not get a Thundercats movie, or a He-man movie, or an Sectaurs movie!

    He-Man has already been confirmed, G.I. Joe has a script written, and that robot movie coming out is in no way a Transformers film. all i see, is a bunch of scrap metal giants that have no representation of their former cartoon selfs. if you were to silhouette them, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

    Uhhh...ummmm...yeah. That was just me posing as Chux for that post. MWAHAHAHAHAHAH!

    Can a Micronauts movie be far behind?
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.
