Early '90s cartoon "Captain Planet and the Planeteers" is going the way of "The Smurfs" and getting a belated big screen adaptation.
In the cartoon, Captain Planet was an Eco-friendly superhero who could be summoned by five adolescents from around the world. The group of teens were bestowed with magical rings that help them stop polluters, but they called in Captain "The Power is Yours" Planet to help with problems they couldn't handle.
Mark Gordon, Don Murphy and Susan Montford are on board to produce the project, but details on how Sony plans to adapt the cartoon are slim. The general Internet consensus is pretty clear though: Get Don Cheadle in this, or it's not going to work.
