I never thought I would find myself writing such a story, but here we are in 2013 and a Captain Planet and the Planeteers movie quite possibly may end up on the big screen.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the story saying Sony is in final negotiations to inherit the rights to make a Captain Planet and the Planeteers film.Producers Mark Gordon,Don Murphy and Susan Montford will handle the film’s production for the large screen. This is decent news considering names like Murphy are responsible for the extremely successful Transformers franchise.
How these guys are going to make this fim work is an interesting thought but one I’d like to see. A film involving five teens, from five continents that are given powers by a spirit to protect Mother Earth is a cool idea for live-action. However, throwing a spandex wearing blue Tom Cruise who flies everywhere, makes things a bit silly. Whatever the outcome, Captain Planet and the Planeteers movie may be ambitious, but the show had a terrific message and if done right, could be great for kids.
