I've been writing a script for a live action movie adaptation of Thundarr The Barbarian over the past several weeks. I've completed Act I, and am now about half way through Act II. You can read my script through the following link:

I hope you all enjoy reading it.

the Boomerang cartoon network channel will re-play episodes of Thundarr if they get enough requests in for it. i've asked them to do so in the past and twice they have did so. And i'm sure they are sites that offer the entire complete set DVD for sale. Google it and see what comes up.

I've just reached the episode Brotherhood Of Night.

The leader of the werewolf pack was named "Zevon".

There's a song called Werewolves Of London which was performed by a band called Zevon.

Coincidence?

I've written a script for a live action movie adaptation of Thundarr The Barbarian several months ago. You can read the script at the following link:

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7987116/...rian_The_Movie

I hope you all enjoy reading it.

I'm also in the process of putting together a fan made trailer for the movie. Unlike most fan trailers on You Tube, mine will be made with local actors playing scenes from my script (everyone else splices together footage from disaster movies like Deep Impact and fantasy films like Conan The Barbarian and Lord Of The Rings).

If any of you are in the film industry and live in the Vancouver area, and are interested in taking part in this project, send me a PM.

I don't live in Vancouver anymore, but if you need a Ookla, just go to a bar in a strip mall in Delta in the middle of the day, and you'll find your guy. You won't even have to use makeup.

Actually, I may have already found my Ookla. He's a 7' tail Aussie stuntman, part time pro wrestler, and use to love watching Thundarr as a kid. I've got how to make the bodysuit figured out in my head. Now I just gotta figure out the make up.

Incidentally, I've started Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns to try and raise funds for the movie trailer. If anyone here is interested in contributing, please check out the websites.

As some of you might know, I have written a screenplay for a feature length live action film adaptation of Thundarr The Barbarian.

I am currently trying to shoot some select scenes from my script, which I can then edit together into a 2 to 3 minute theatrical trailer to show some major Hollywood film producers (Robert Rodriguez, Joss Whedon, Nellie Bellflower, Michael Bay, etc). Hopefully it will make them want to make the complete film.

If any of you would like to help me make this happen, please click on one of the links below.

I have recently entered my Thundarr The Barbarian/Conan The Adventurer crossover story "Thundarr The Barbarian in The Wrath Of Crom" into a fan fiction writing contest. Here is the link.

I had heard of this a while ago. Good God does it ever suck! Thankfully it was never greenlit.

Quote:
Finding Gold in a Played Out Mine




When people want to take potshots at Hollywood's lack of originality, an easy target the movie based on childhood nostalgia. Some, like the TRANSFORMERS franchise, become box office juggernauts, others, like G.I. JOE and LAND OF THE LOST, don't quite live up to expectations. But entertainment is in execution, not concept. The promise of revisiting our sugar cereal drenched, Saturday Morning TV memories is just a way of getting people to pay for tickets. It's what you do with that promise that determines whether you have a smash or a flop.

A couple of years ago, I took a shot at resurrecting a couple of childhood favorites. First thing I did was check YouTube for old episodes. Ouch. I could appreciate the shows in their original context but it was obvious that my fevered little kid brain was adding a lot between the lines. I decided to take the basic concepts and treat them as if they were brand new ideas... which of course guaranteed that I'd piss off fans of the original shows. Thing is, most of those fans don't watch cartoons anymore and the advertisers don't care if they do. They aren't the target of the toy and fast foodl commercials that ultimately pay for the shows.

In the middle of writing the series pitch, it occurred to me that if I rewrote it as a live action movie for Will Ferrell, it could easily be huge. Yeah, Will Ferrell in THUNDARR THE BARBARIAN. I didn't know it but he was then in production on LAND OF THE LOST. Don't think Will will be donning barbarian togs anytime soon. But that was just a passing thought; I've never considered animation as a stepping stone to another medium. Besides, I was developing Thundarr and THE HERCULOIDS while finishing my time at Film Roman Studios. When Starz bought the studio and decided, for the time being, that the animation side would just concentrate on work for hire assignments. They don't own a piece of THE SIMPSONS but they get a decent paycheck for producing the show for Fox without risking their own money. Our plan was to generate new work by pitching ideas that other people owned in the hopes of getting the work producing them.
So we went to Cartoon Network and said, "Look at what we've done with these cool properties that you already own!" They said, "Cool. But we don't own those properties." Turns out that, although both companies are part of one conglomerate, Warner Brothers owns the rights to all those old Hanna Barbera and Ruby Spears shows, not Cartoon Network. However they said that if WB was interested, they might be interested. So the long shot became a longer shot because, as you may be aware of, Warner Brothers has their own animated studio.

But hey, Starz had nothing else for me and even though this was now a getting longer long shot, all they needed to pay for was an artist to work with me. I chose Ben Caldwell. I would love to work with Ben as my art director on a show. His style is unique, animation friendly and his brain is full of world building ideas. Check out his art books and his Wonder Woman strip in DC's Wednesday Comics if you can still find the back issues.

But the chances of our version of Thundarr shriveled at the start of the pitch when we were told it was already in development as an animated DVD by Bruce Timm's group. Now don't go getting all excited; those guys have tons of stuff "in development." Sometimes it just means they've called, "Dibbs!" as an idea they intend to get to someday. The intent is to go right back to Thundarr's CONAN THE BARBARIAN roots and do a serious fantasy/science fiction epic. Could be awesome and because the DVD audience can be older than a series audience, it makes more sense to try a straight version.

But obviously, "straight" was not the direction I was heading. I certainly planned to have major action in every episode but much more comedy with very broad characters. To me, the original Thundarr was packed with great Jack Kirby and Steve Gerber ideas but it carried a lot of dated baggage. First, a post apocalyptic world is a hard sell to the networks. Secondly, there's a lot of PLANET OF THE APES type material there, not as fresh as it once was. And finally, the trio at the core needed lots of 'splainin'. Why would a princess be traveling with a barbarian and a... hairy, metal-faced lion/bigfoot creature? Shouldn't she be taking care of her kingdom? Trying to come up with an explanation is what led to the show. I'm not saying you have to be 100% logical when developing an idea, where's the fun in that? But the basic relationships have to "feel right."

The Princess ended up being my favorite character, partially because she isn't a princess, she's a con artist. Thundarr became the guy who knows what's right but is incredibly naive to the ways of the world. He is smitten with the princess but won't admit it because, as a princess, she's out of his league. The princess (who you'll remember is not really a princess because I told you that just a few sentences back) likes him but can't admit it because she's afraid he'll leave her because of his hatred for criminals. Potentially great story fodder on a concept, character and humor levels. This would have been a really, really fun one.

Now rather than summarizing the pitch, I'll just let you read it. All the original ideas are mine and I'm sure I'll recycle the best ones into a future project. Unless I get a call from the Sam Register and the guys at Warner Brothers! Enjoy. -- Tad
The websit were you can download and read his s**tty pitch is located here . . . http://www.hellboyanimated.typepad.c...-out-mine.html.

I don't know what the hell Tad Stones was smoking when he wrote that piece of crap, but he sure lived up to his surname because he must have been stoned out of his mind!

Will Ferrel as Thundarr? Thundarr growing up worshiping a football? Princess Ariel's name being changed to Princess Asphodel? And making her a con artist rather than a princess? Ookla being some sort of cyborg? (Although I think he wrote this because he erroneously believes that Ookla's face was made out of metal in the original series. FYI, it's NOT. That was just the colour of his facial fur.)

The whole thing reeks of s**t! Tad Stones, you should be ASHAMED of yourself!

It would have been worth it just to see your head explode, Thundarr.
