Report: DiCaprio, Paramount to combine powers, create live action 'Captain Planet' movie
Matt Jaworowski, Media General National Desk – (MEDIA GENERAL) – The 90s reboot is almost complete!
On the heels of the "Power Rangers" and "Legends of The Hidden Temple" remakes, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting another 90s icon is making a comeback – Captain Planet.
Per THR, Paramount and the production company of noted environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio are working together on a project, with Paramount working to secure the rights to the cartoon series.
The cartoon series "Captain Planet and the Planeteers," which aired from 1990-96, centered on five teenagers from across the world with powerful rings that could control natural elements – Earth, fire, wind, water and heart! And when those powers combine, Captain Planet is summoned to help protect the Earth from eco-villains like polluters, poachers or those breaking environmental laws.
The project reportedly was in development at Sony but was shelved and the rights have since lapsed.
