Cartoon Network has teamed up with producer Don Murphy (Transformers) to oversee a live-action film adaptation of the '90's eco-friendly cartoon Captain Planet And The Planeteers.

"We are extremely excited about bringing the good captain back to life," said Murphy via a formal statement. "[The Captain's] adventures are known worldwide and he is recognized across generations."

The plan is to spawn a Captain Planet franchise, which makes the casting here even more crucial. Just imagine having to endure two to three starring a Taylor Lautner type in a green wig. You know that could damn well happen, too.
