Warner Bros has begun to take the necessary steps by picking up scribe Paul Sopocy to help get a live action Thundercats adaptation in the works.
Live Action Thundercats
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.
Sounds crazy, I know.
Paul Sopocy's script expands on the characters while focusing on Lion-O coming of age as the leader of the Thundercats.
The Thundercats franchise began in 1983 and spawned several animated series, with the most recent airing on Cartoon Network, a toy line produced by LJN and comicbooks published by Marvel and DC imprints. Warner Bros. has owned the rights to the animated series since acquiring Telepictures Corp. in 1989.
