That’s right those walking, talking, giant alien kitties are going to be showing at a theatre near you in the eventual future. For those of you who don’t know, Thundercats is a cult 1980’s animated series that ran from 1985-1987. The Tundercats are a group of humanoid cats who’s planet, Thundera, is destroyed and crash land on a new world. There they encounter the evil sorcerer, Mumm-Ra, and his posse who have it in for the Tcats.

Variety reports that the film will be an origin story focusing on Lion-O becoming the team leader. Warner Brothers has optioned a script by Paul Sopocy (this will be his first studio movie). Paula Weinstein’s (Blood Diamond, Perfect Storm) Spring Creek Productions will produce with Dick Robertson and Lew Korman.

Vin Diesel is rumoured to play Panthro. Ok that’s not true but there is a similarity between the two.
