The cavalcade of ’80s animation to the big screen of the 21st century continues!
“Thunder … Thunder … Thunder … Thundercats, ho!”
Variety reports that Jerry O’Flaherty, art director on such popular video games as Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3, will direct the CG retelling of those cats from Thundera. This will be O’Flaherty’s first foray into film.
The magazine says the movie will encapsulate the origin story of the Thundercats and their journey from a dying world to a new home inhabited by an undead sorcerer named Mumm-Ra. Who hates them. For some reason.
