Movie Adaptation Of Ben 10 Gets A Screenwriter
According to Variety, producer Joel Silver (“Speed Racer”), responsible for adapting the world-known and loved by children “Ben 10” to theaters, as hired screenwriter Albert Torres (“Henry Poole Is Here“) to write the film.
The intention is that the character from Cartoon Network will turn into a series of films controlled by Warner Bros. films. To achieve this goal, the film will receive a seven-figure budget and should be shot in live-action 3D.
In the plot, Ben Tennyson is a 10 year old who discovers a device called the Omnitrix, which holds the DNA of 10 different alien species. The device transforms the wearer into any one of these aliens. With these new powers, Ben will have to defend the land and face several enemies to keep himself safe. For this, he enlists the help of his cousin Gwen and Grandpa Max Tennyson
There are already three movies done about the character (“Ben 10: Alien Swarm,” “Ben 10: Race Against Time” and “Ben 10: Secret of the Omnitrix”), but none was made by Warner and the latter was launched in 2009.
There are no names for a director or a possible date for the start of filming.
