`Captain Planet` film officially in the making

Los Angeles: ‘Captain Planet and the Planeteers’ movie is officially under development at Sony Pictures.

The big-screen version of the environmental cartoon is to be produced by Mark Gordon, Don Murphy and Susan Montford, the Hollywood Reporter said.

The 1990s toon series told the story of five teens from around the world who were chosen to be the bearers of powerful elemental rings which would help them protect the planet from the devastation of looters and polluters.

Dr Blight, Verminous Skumm and Duke Nukem were some of villains that the Captain and the Planeteers faced off against.

Andrea Giannetti will oversee the production for Sony. As of now, no director and screenwriter have been secured to work on the project yet.

A feature adaptation was initially about to take form in the 1990s, but it only reached the script stage. In the late 2000s, Murphy and Montford almost succeeded to turn the fan-favourite series into a Cartoon Network film, but it again failed to come true following a new pro-pollution policy adopted by the Network.
