If you follow news about DC movies regularly, then you’re well aware that there are a lot of projects in development for the DC Extended Universe. Seriously, a lot, as in nearly two dozen! Not all of these projects will see the light of day, but every now and then a new one is added to the mix, and today brings word that there’s now a Plastic Man movie in the works. Talk about stretching yourself thin!
Warner Bros has tapped screenwriter Amanda Idoko to pen a Plastic Man movie, which is described as a “comedic action-adventure.” No specific details about Idoko’s Plastic Man story were revealed, but apparently her hiring caps off a six month-long search on Warner Bros part to find someone for the gig. According to sources who spoke with THR, Warner Bros is intending for this Plastic Man movie to stay “true to the light-hearted and even silly tones of the character.” The project is still in the early stages, so there’s no directed attached yet, but New Line’s Bob Shaye will executive produce.
