It’s not each day that two of essentially the most well-known administrators in animation historical past leap into the world of comedian books, however that’s about to occur. Administrators Ron Clements and John Musker, who made movies you will have heard of like Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Moana, want to make an animated film based mostly on the DC collection Metallic Males.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the information and add the pair has teamed up with author Celeste Ballard (Area Jam: A New Legacy) on the venture. Clements and Musker wrote a remedy and want to direct however there’s no phrase if this could be Warner Bros. theatrical or for HBO Max.
Now, clearly, Metallic Males isn’t certainly one of DC’s premiere titles however the idea actually has some actual potential and has been introduced again to life over time. Created within the early Sixties by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru, the story adopted a superb scientist who created six clever robots (who, regardless of the title, had been not all males) bestowed with powers centered on the precise metallic they had been made from: goutdated, iron, lead, tin, mercury, and platinum. Tones shifted with the characters and there’s no phrase on what Clements, Musker, and Ballard have deliberate, however one would think about, for those who have a look at the director’s earlier works, a family-pleasant journey with coronary heart and humor appears seemingly.
In accordance with the commerce, this isn’t the primary time Warner Bros. has tried to deliver Metallic Males to the large display screen. A stay motion model was in improvement within the early 2000s with big-time names akin to Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Males), DC mainstay Geoff Johns, and even Barry Sonnenfeld (Males In Black). That didn’t materialize (get it?) although, and with Warner Bros. actually going by its DC properties to unfold throughout all its mediums, this appears like a model that has a great shot of solidifying. Yup, one other metallic pun.
