New Screenwriter Hired for ‘Ben 10’


Just a quick update this morning for anyone anxious to see a live-action movie on the big screen based on the Cartoon Network series, Ben 10. The film is under development by uber-producer Joel Silver, the man behind The Matrix, Sherlock Holmes and Lethal Weapon films, and up until recently, Albert Torres (Henry Poole is Here) was toiling on the script. Now, it’s being reported by The Hollywood Reporter that Ryan Engle (New Line’s upcoming adaptation of the video game Rampage) will be reworking the screenplay.

Do you remember Ben 10? If not, here’s the premise courtesy of Wikipedia:

Ben 10 centers around Ben Tennyson, a ten-year-old boy on a cross-country summer vacation, with his cousin Gwen and their grandfather Max. On their first night camping in their grandfather’s RV affectionately named the “Rust Bucket,” Ben finds an alien pod with a mysterious watch-like device named the Omnitrix. The device then permanently attaches itself to his wrist giving him the ability to transform into a variety of alien life-forms each with its own unique skills and powers. With his newfound super powers Ben has to learn the responsibilities of being a hero. During their vacation, the Tennysons are attacked by various enemies ranging from space aliens to supernatural entities.
