It looks like the monsterverse epic Godzilla Vs Kong is going to be a hit so director Adam Wingard is going to be hot in demand for the foreseeable future. It was announced recently that he will direct a direct sequel to Face/Off and now it looks like he’s going to try his hand at a live action THUNDERCATS movie which will be based on the popular 80’s cartoon.

The THUNDERCATS and Director Adam Wingard

Deadline broke the news and it’s stated that the movie will be a mixture of live action and CGI. Wingard and Simon Barrett will pen the script based on the property that ran from 85 to 89 and centered on:

“the adventures of the eponymous team of heroes, cat-like humanoid aliens on a planet called Third Earth. … When the ThunderCats awake from their suspended animation on Third Earth after ten “galacto-years”, Lion-O discovers that his suspension capsule has slowed, rather than stopped, his aging.”

In the article, Wingard talked about the project and what his intentions were for the film that will no doubt be highly anticipated:

“I saw this as an opportunity to do a new type of fantasy sci-fi spectacle film that people have never seen before. It’s got a rich mythology; the characters are fantastic. The colors. I want to do a ThunderCats film that takes you back to that ‘80s aesthetic. I don’t want to reinvent the way they look; I want them to look like ThunderCats. I don’t want to do it live action, either. I don’t want it to look like Cats, I don’t want those kinds of issues — no disrespect to that director, whom I don’t mean to throw under the bus any more than everyone else has. I want to do a movie you’ve never seen before. A hybrid CGI film that has a hyper real look and somehow bridges the gap between cartoon and CGI. That’s the starting point, and Simon Barrett and I are getting into the script now,”

Keep it locked and loaded right here for more as we are your destination for everything action and 80’s awesomeness!
