Joel Silver is not one to give up on a concept. After the abysmal failure of 'Speed Racer,' he's going to take another crack at kids cartoon fare by developing a live-action feature film based on the Cartoon Network's 'Ben 10' animated sci-fi franchise. And, according to Variety, he has plans to take it to Warner Bros. in hopes of creating a new franchise.
For those of you without pre-adolescent boys or an interest in animated fare, Ben Tennyson is a typical kid who becomes very atypical after he discovers the Omnitrix, a mysterious, alien watch-like weapon with the power to transform the wearer into 10 different alien species with superpowers, which he uses to save the world. The first series began in 2005; followed by a somewhat darker second series, 'Ben 10: Alien Force,' in 2008; followed by a third series, 'Ben 10: Ultimate Alien,' which premiered in 2010. A fourth series is in production.
