First Look at the Thundercats?

66 Comments

You may have heard: the Thundercats are coming to a big screen near you. But don’t worry, it’s not going to be live-action, because let’s face it, live-action Thundercats would just be … weird. Instead, the whole shebang will be CGI animation, but if Internet rumors are correct (re: it probably isn’t), then the movie’s got some pretty big names behind it, including Hugh Jackman, Jessica Simpson and Michael Clarke Duncan. And again, i stress the if correct part. In any case, here is your (sorta) first look at what the Thundercats will look like.

From I09, who links to these guys:

Here’s a model of what the heads will supposedly look like in the new CGI Thundercats movie, which appears to be using some kind of motion-capture and supposedly stars Hugh Jackman, Jessica Simpson and Michael Clarke Duncan.

The only sure things about the “Thundercats” movie is that Jerry O’Flaherty will be directing from a script by Paul Sopocy, and the film is being looked at as a 2009-2010 release.

    Is there any way we can boycott Jessica Simpson being in the movie? If there is send me the link…I’d get everyone I know to sign it. She’d totally ruin the movie. I love Thundercats, it better be fucking awesome or they shouldn’t do it.

    Peace.

    I agree with all of the above. Jessica Simpson has a great body, but Thundercats needs someone tall and athletic to play the female lead. And it MUST be live action! Seriously.

      After watching the trailer on you tube, I think that the cast they have
      shown would be ideal. Vin Diesel would make a fantastic Panthro, Brad
      Pitt as Lion-O, Hugh Jackman as Tigra and (excuse me I cant remember her
      name) the woman from Farscape I think looked spot on as Cheetarah.

      Bring on LIVE ACTION Thundercats.

      Jessica Simpson DOES NOT HAVE A GREAT BODY. Her tush is about as shapely as a pancake. The can pad it up like they did in the Dukes of Hazzard tragedy but it’s not the same as a real one.

      For a REAL and shapely posterior, you need someone with an athletic body like Jessica Biel or Jaime Pressly. You know, someone who isn’t flat reared like Jessica Simpson.

    i’d agree with the NO LIVE ACTION… cuz most actors tend to ruin a true masterpiece… look at most video games that where turned to movies… the acting was horrible and the directors just sucked… but i will say that final fantasy VII: advent children was a work of art… if the cg work is a great as that movie then all we would have to worry about is the plot of the movie… i just hope it stays true to the 80’s show cuz it was one of my favorites growing up as well as silverhawks, transformers, and g.i. joe…
