From giant carnage-causing shark, to pint-sized miniature hero. That’s the path to be taken by Jon and Erich Hoeber.
Courtesy of Deadline, the screenwriters behind The Meg have been signed up to pen Paramount’s Mighty Mouse movie. Said picture has been floating around in development hell since as far back as 2004, and now the studio is seemingly moving forward once more with an offering that’s being positioned as a mixture of live-action and animation.
The character of Mighty Mouse has been around since way back in 1942, created by Paul Terry as a parody of sorts of a certain Man of Steel. As such, the teeny, tiny hero was gifted super strength, flight and X-ray vision as part of his superpowers. In the decades since, audiences have seen Mighty Mouse given a whole host of animated adventures, and now we’ll seemingly have one more cinematic outing for the little scamp.
As ever, expect more on Paramount’s Mighty Mouse as it continues to develop.
