    Default Thundercats

    Thundercats is being developed by Warner Bros., but Bay is not involved.

    From Variety Jun. 5, 2007:
    It's Thundercats, ho! at Warner Bros.

    Studio has optioned a script by tyro scribe Paul Sopocy to turn the popular 1980s animated series and toy line into a CGI-animated feature.
    From Variety Oct.9, 2007:
    Warner Bros. has tapped its top Thundercat.

    Vidgame vet Jerry O'Flaherty will helm the studio's CG-animated "Thundercats" feature, based on the popular '80s cartoon series, comicbook and toy line.


    The project marks the first feature directing gig for O'Flaherty, who served as an art director on such bestselling games as "Gears of War" and "Unreal Tournament 3" for Epic Games and the "Command and Conquer" series from Westwood Studios.


    O'Flaherty had been looking to make the leap into movies and was considering several projects, even live action.


    But the "Thundercats" story appealed to him, as well as the fact that vidgames are increasingly incorporating lavish animated sequences that mimic pics, making a toon a much easier transition.


    "It feels like a natural thing for me to step into," he said. "Games have come so far now. The last four years of my life have been about bringing the energy of filmmaking into the videogame experience."


    O'Flaherty will now work with scribe Paul Sopocy on the script.

    I wish Michael Bay make a movie about Homer Lea. Lea is a great Angelino, so as Michael Bay. Anyway, please read about Lea's story at this website, www.homerleasite.com. Thank you!

    There are other japanese anime series that Michael Bay would be the perfect director for and probably the only one able to give them a proper adaptation after Transformers:

    - Gundam (mainly 0080, 0083, Z and ZZ series, F91 and the classic series)
    - Bastard! (it's a sci-fi fantasy with very dark and funny gross moments)
    - Bubble Gum Crisis
    - A.D. Police
    - Gunbuster (the original first sci-fi version, not the 2nd cheap awful one)
    - Guyver

    There would be even more (including some that other studios currently got he rights for but produced nothing so far) that Michael Bay unique visual style along with Steven Spielberg could turn into reality on high budget movies with outstanding CGI just like Transformers. However in order to adapt and bring to life each one of just those I listed I think that it would require at least as much effort as it was put on Transformers, those are pretty complex storylines (and the CGI needed for creatures and weapons would be massive and expensive). I hope that in the future Mr.Bay might consider acquiring rights for and directing the adaptation of those japanese anime stories.
