Good news for Dev Patel! Transformers producer Don Murphy and his partner Susan Montford have signed a deal with Cartoon Network to bring a live-action Captain Planet to the big screen. Finally a mulleted hero the world can depend on.
“The messages of Captain Planet are even more relevant today,” said Snyder [TBS COO]. “We feel this team can bring the world’s first eco-hero to life in a powerful motion picture that is not only pertinent but entertaining.”
“We are extremely excited about bringing the good Captain back to life,” said Murphy. “His adventures are known worldwide and he is recognized across generations. We expect to make a spectacular series of films with the amazing team at Cartoon Network.”
“With the earthquakes, tornadoes, melting icebergs and all the other problems threatening the world right now, Earth really needs her greatest defender,” said Montford.
