It seems that the Hollywood creative geniuses are running out of idea these days and most of them are turning to remake and book adaptations. It is reportedly said that a live action “Dino-Riders” movie is planned to bring the 1980’s animated series back to screen as a blockbuster franchise. Read on to find out more interesting revelation about “Dino-Riders” scoop ahead.
According to Comic Book, Mattel and Solipsist Film are working in alliance for the production of “Dino-Riders.” Alissa Phillips and Stephen L’Heureux are currently searching for a writer to work on the adaptation.
The franchise was created by Gerry Conway and Carla Conway which was aired in 1988. The prime objective of launching “Dino-Riders” was to promote a toy line named as Tyco, which is now owned by Mattel.
It features on a battle between protagonist super humans Valorians and antagonist humanoid Rulons in a prehistoric era of earth. That era befriended dinosaurs and Valorians but Rulons provoked them against Valorians. Both the races then enlist dinosaurs who help them in their battle. The show featured Charles Adler, Jack Angel, Cam Clarke and Townsend Coleman in the voice cast.
The series aired only for 14 episodes, though, the idea of movies does not sound bad, but of course the execution and story line will matter the most.
The point is nobody actually remembers them, but Mattel doesn’t care about it and has already given a go ahead for the development of the idea. It is speculated that the company might be trying to compete Hasbros’ “Transformers.”
“Tansformers” in fact were able to build up a strong image and later turned into a popular property too against which “Dino-Riders” gave up.
