A lengthy seven and a half months after Joel Silver got his hands on the property, Variety reports that a screenwriter has boarded a live-action take on Ben 1o Alien Force, simply titled Ben 10. That fellow is Albert Torres, writer of Henry Poole is Here and, no less, one of the many names attached to the script of Warner’s Akira. For Silver — and, it looks like, Warner Bros. — he’ll be adapting the tale of “Ben Tennyson, a boy who can transform into 10 different alien creatures with the help of a glovelike device called the Omnitrix.”
This, on the surface, will come across to some as a minor update, but it’s actually a big step forward — especially since I thought this project just kind of fell by the wayside. Now, I don’t know if Torres can actually make something strong out of this material — his weak track record and the apparent blandness of the show itself don’t help — but, with any luck, we’ll know more soon enough to make a judgement.
Are you happy to hear that Ben 10 is moving forward?
