Disney has made some fantastic cartoons that we’ve all grown up watching, and the Gargoyles series was one of the best — hands down. Sadly, this isn’t about the wickedly sweet animated series.

Currently being produced by Lauren Shuler Donner of the X-Men franchise, the series is currently in the hands of G.I. Joe Rise of Cobra screenwriters David Elliot and Paul Lovett. They are rewriting the script that had previously been written by Zoe Green… and it should worry you. Not to ruffle any feathers or anything, but G.I. Joe sucked some major ass; it still baffles the mind that the studios okayed a sequel to that trash. Disney just screwed the pooch on this one.

The film centers on “a world in which the stony statues on buildings come to life. Elliot and Lovett would portray them as guardian angels for the cities in which they reside”. So, it’s not quite the animated series… but it practically is the animated series.

Hopefully the sun does come up on this feature — only so someone can smash it to tiny bits.
