Leonardo DiCaprio is producing a Captain Planet movie



Leonardo DiCaprio is set to produce a Captain Planet film over at Paramount. Jono Matt and Glen Powell are in negotiations to write the script based on the 1990s cartoon series.

The cartoon followed five young people from around the world who were given magical rings that had the power to control natural elements including earth, wind, fire, water, and heart. When their powers combined, they summoned Captain Planet, a superhero who helped fight against environmental evils.

According to The Tracking Board, the film will be a little different. It will be set years in the future when Captain Planet is a washed up has-been who needs the kids more than they need him.

I think I have only ever seen a couple of episodes of the animated show, so I’m not really bothered with any changes they make for the film. The new take sounds interesting, but could easily fall flat.

What are your thoughts on the plans for the film?

Of course, Don Cheadle was an excellent Captain Planet in the Funnyordie video below.

DiCaprio will produce with Jennifer Davisson under his Appian Way banner along with Powell.
