Well shit. This will teach me to open my big mouth: Warner Bros. has announced plans to make a feature-length CGI adaptation of the beloved (?) '80s cartoon Thundercats. The script—written by first-timer Paul Sopocy, formerly an advertising copywriter for Fox Broadcasting—is reportedly an origin story focusing on Lion-O's "coming of age as the leader of a group of humanoid cats from the planet Thundera." Thundercats, as previously reported, joins upcoming adaptations of He-Man, G.I. Joe, and Voltron and this summer's Transformers in the new "Dude, remember?" school of filmmaking.
