MGM is making it along with Ice Age writer doing the screenplay!
Taken from the article:
The site adds that the film will be "an origin story in which an imperiled mouse protagonist befriends a comical crew of lab rats as they turn hyper-intelligent. They escape a secret laboratory and become the great minds of vermin civilization, forced to outwit the humans hot on their tails."
Maybe this will be the NIMH remake we always wanted! Or maybe it'll be a load of crap! Probably the latter because I'm just that cynical!
Also what makes me worried is the fact that it's going to be half CGI and half live action. So basically it will look like the characters are on a different plane of existence. I fail to see how this is going to end up attractive looking like the animated version.
What also makes me worried is this:
MGM's Senior VP Cassidy Lange will oversee the project, with Daniel Bobker and Ehren Kruger producing. Currently, the plan is to turn NIMH into a franchise.
That last sentence there kinda scares me. I guess the book sequels would make it somewhat plausible, but Hollywood's idea of franchising is what ruins it for me. Focus on making a complete story first and then make good sequels.
So I'm not really feeling it, but what are your thoughts? Is it going to be good or suck?
