So, this is kind of cool. I got a tip yesterday from an anonymous source that he had test footage of the Thundercats CGI-reboot film. Upon further questioning, homeboy sent over the footage, and it checks out (Warner Bros logo and everything). But before we get to the video, let’s go back to 2007, when Variety broke the news of the reboot. At the time, Jerry O’Flaherty, art director Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3, was to direct the movie. Then, in 2009, Movieline posted some leaked concept art of the film. As of now, the film has been put on hold, but a new TV series is scheduled to drop this year.
What do you think? Personally, I was never a Thundercats kind of guy, but I would go see this movie. I honestly have no idea how old this footage is, though. So the movie could be completely changed by the time it releases (if at all). I’ll keep my ear to the ground about any new developments.[via Variety, Movieline]
