Another DC superhero is headed to the big screen.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, DC and Warner Bros. are actively developing a feature film centered on Plastic Man. Amanda Idoko (Breaking News in Yuba County) has reportedly been tapped to pen the screenplay, while former New Line co-founder Bob Shaye will serve as executive producer. THR says DC's Walter Hamada and Chantal Nong will oversee the film.
Plastic Man was introduced in Quality Comics in 1941, but was acquired by DC about 15 years later after Quality went under. The character's true identity is Patrick "Eel" O'Brian, a former gang member who was shot while burglarizing a chemical plant. The gun wound allowed a chemical to enter his bloodstream, giving him the ability to stretch and bend like rubber. Hence the moniker.
The character left his life of crime, and decided to use his powers to for good. Plastic Man join the police force, the FBI, and the Justice League. He also starred in his own animated TV series from 1979-81.
Ben Schwartz of Parks and Recreation and House of Lies has expressed interest, presently as well as in the past:
