‘Captain Planet’ Movie Being Planned By ‘Transformers’ Producer

Sony is close to securing the rights to make a Captain Planet movie because why the hell not?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mark Gordon (2012), Don Murphy (Transformers) and Susan Montford (Splice) will be producing the adaptation of the nostalgia-stuffed 90s television show where teenagers imbued with special powers via Gaia-given rings tried to shut down polluters.

Which, now that I think about it, Captain Planet wasn’t a huge presence on the program. He was more of a Day Glo Blue Ex Machina that descended whenever the kids failed (every episode). But regardless of how much he’s featured in the movie version, I think we can all agree on who should play him.
