As his new film Godzilla Vs. Kong opens Wednesday in U.S. theaters and on HBO Max after turning up a Hollywood film pandemic record $123 million gross in 38 overseas markets last weekend, director Adam Wingard is set to direct Thundercats. That is a big scale feature based on an animated TV series that ran from 1985-89 by Rankin Bass, and several other iterations, comic books and merchandse.

The project had been developed by Rideback’s Dan Lin and Vertigo’s Roy Lee (they were producers on the Wingard-directed Death Note), with an early script by David Coggeshall. Wingard will start from scratch to turn all this into a hybrid of CGI and animation. The series focuses on a group of cat-like humanoid aliens who live on the dying planet Dundera. The Thundercats are an elite group that is charged with saving the species.

Dude is a huge Thundercats fanatic. So his version will be more like this:

Title says movie but the article mentions series? Am I missing something?

Edit: Ah, maybe it's just mentioning the history of the show.

You mean one that is somehow better than the 1980s one with Courtney Cox and the bald guy from top gun?

I trust no more remakes from the 80s. Fool me twice can’t get fooled again.

If they made a new He-Man movie it wouldn't be a remake. Just a new interpretation of the property.

Blair Witch and Death Note were both abortions but You're Next Godzilla vs Kong were great. I'm willing to give this a shot.
