Hello ladies and gentlemen, Muldoon here with a bit of cool news via VARIETY. Joel Silver's Silver Pictures has brought on Albert Torres to help script the new BEN 10 flick. Torres is fresh off the now dead AKIRA movie and wrote HENRY POOL IS HERE. The film's based on the popular Cartoon Network TV show about a boy (Ben Tennyson) who finds an alien wrist watch that allows him to transform into 10 different kind of alien creatures. It's one of the biggest cartoons out right now with toys, coloring books, and all of that jazz... Of course I'm still scratching my head that they're making this film in the first place. There's already two live action BEN 10 flicks, one from 2007 and one from 2009 (both directed by none other than Alex fucking Winter), so who knows. I'll be curious to see how Torres's version compares to that flick.
The film's scheduled to come out some time in 2013.
