Appian Way is currently in talks for the rights to the 1990s cartoon series, and they’re “eyeing” Jono Matt and Scream Queens star Glen Powell as scripwriters for the new film.
The Hollywood Reporter cites sources saying that the storyline is set to take place years after the show, with “the Captain now a washed-up has-been who needs the kids more than they need him.” Potential cast members have yet to be named.
The original show aired from September 1990 to December 1992, focusing around five young people who unite with the Captain to help fight against environmental evils.
