If Warner Bros get their way, Adam Wingard’s recently-announced live-action take on “ThunderCats” will star Ryan Reynolds and Millie Bobby Brown.
The “Deadpool” and “Stranger Things” stars, respectively, are atop of a wish-list to star in the big-screen update of the classic animated series. Brown recently appeared in Wingard’s “Godzilla vs.Kong”, which should help nudge those negotiations along.
Actor Vin Diesel, next in the Corona-delayed “F9”, has reportedly also put his hand up for a role in the film (balls in your court, WB), being produced by Dan Lin and Roy Lee.
“ThunderCats”, which will be a mix of CGI and animation, tells of a group of cat-like humanoid aliens who lives on the dying planet Thundera.
Wingard and Simon Barrett will rewrite a draft by David Coggeshall, of “The Haunting in Connecticut 2″ fame.
