It was announced on June 5, 2007, that Warner Brothers is making a CGI-animated feature film of ThunderCats, based on a script written by Paul Sopocy. In October 2007, Variety magazine revealed that Jerry O'Flaherty, veteran video game art director, had signed on to direct. The film is being produced by Spring Creek Productions. It was originally set for a summer 2010 release, but it has since been reported that the movie is on hold.
Concept art for the film has also been leaked online..
In May 2009 the first new merchandise related to the ThunderCats property was announced by Hard Hero, a company specializing in highly detailed fantasy statues. The first statue will be released in early 2010.
Thundercats is on its way to the big screen……at last! Warner Brothers are turning the 80’s animated series and toy line into a movie from a script written by Paul Sopocy, first-time screenwriter.
Spring Creek Pictures are set to produce the movie. Dan Lin, Senior Vice President of Production at Warner Brothers, will produce along with Paula Weinstein, **** Robertson and Lew Korman.
Despite initial news stories, the movie is going to be a CGI-animated feature and not a live action movie. The movie is set to be released in 2010. I have been waiting years for this movie, I really do hope that it is worth the wait!
It’s the type of big-time Hollywood movie that we’ve been dying to see, a mega-budget
action spectacular of epic proportions starring Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, and Vin Diesel in a live-action movie of the “Thundercats” cartoon show! Okay, so not really. It’s just a fanmade trailer of what a Thundercats live-action movie would look like if it starred those three names, with scenes taken from Diesel’s “The Chronicles of Rid****”, Pitt in “Troy”, and Jackman from the “X-Men” flicks. Also in there, Gigi Edgley as Chiana from the TV show Farscape, though I’m sure most people will have no idea who she is. And of course, Snarf. What would a Thundercat movie be without Snarf? Personally I might have gone with that fat kid from “Superbad”, but hey, I guess an animated purple muppet would work, too
