Once you reach a certain age, it's time for Hollywood to start dredging up your childhood memories in hopes that you'll pay to regain two hours of your lost innocence. The latest franchise to be placed atop this dreadful altar is Thundercats. Cynicism aside, we should probably note that Warner Brothers has chosen Jerry O'Flaherty, art director for Gears of War and the upcoming Unreal Tournament III, to direct the upcoming film adaptation of Thundercats. O'Flaherty promises to stay true to the series, though the limited experience of screenwriter Paul Sopocy has us a bit worried. Thankfully, the movie will be done in CG, something O'Flaherty has significant experience with. And, as an added bonus, it saves us from the prospect of live action Thundercats. We're keeping our fingers crossed. At the very least, this brings our dreams of owning a replica Sword of Omens a little closer to reality.
