"Captain Planet" to be Made as a Live-Action Film
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Cartoon Network has signed a deal with Transformers producer Don Murphy and his company Angry Fireworks to develop a live-action movie based on the 1990s cartoon Captain Planet and the Planeteers.
The film will cover the first environmental super-hero that aired from 1990-1996 on TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network, and syndication. The news followed a mid-June announcement that Joel Silver will make a live-action Ben 10 film.
No word on who’ll play Captain Planet at this time.
