Ben 10 to get big screen
aAfter growing into a massive franchise, Ben 10 is going to have a big screen treatment. Joel Silver, Sherlock Holmes producer, is set to develop the Cartoon Network series, with Warner Bros. Pictures handling the distribution.
According to Variety, Silvers goal is making a potential franchise starter for the action flick. I think we have to try something fresh and go at it in a way that stays true to the original material, so he said. I have a 5-year-old and a 9-year-old, so its somewhere between them. Steve Richards from Dark Castle added, We really see this as a large, big-budgeted tentpole movie. Having made a children action film Speed Racer, Silver suggested that the forthcoming movie will be different. I tried to do [something similar] with 'Speed Racer and failed miserably, the producer admitted. You always learn more from the ones that dont work than the ones that do work.
Ben 10 follows 10-year-old Ben Tennyson who finds a watch-like device called the Omnitrix. The special device attaches itself to Bens wrist, allowing him to transform into 10 different alien creatures. AS
