Thundercats Movie Set For Netflix
Rumors of a possible made for Netflix "Thundercats" movie have been confirmed by a online source.
The website geekdommovies.com has confirmed that a Michael Bay directed movies starring Ryan Reynolds and Dave Franco called "Six Underground" is really a live action version of the 1980's cartoon Thundercats!
The originally released premise for Six Underground said that the story revolved around six billionaires who fake their deaths in order to team up and fight evil. The project was given a $150 million budget, one of the largest budgets to ever be given by Netflix, with the hopes that it would spawn a franchise, much like Bright. The script is being helmed by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who previously wrote both Deadpool movies for Ryan Reynolds, hinting that the movie may be an action comedy.
A reliable source connected to IGN has now claimed that that the movie is secretly set to be about the ThunderCats, and that the entire Six Underground premise is just a ploy in order to make the ThunderCats reveal a surprise. IGN has pointed out that their source is the same source that claimed that Simon Pegg would be in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which ended up being true, so they are certainly reliable. While this rumor should still be taken with a grain of salt, it is still interesting news.
