Warner Bros. In Early Stages Of 'Plastic Man' Movie

December 10, 2018
Warner Bros. is looking to stretch the DC Comics hero Plastic Man onto the big-screen and have hired screenwriter Amanda Idoko to pen the script for a comedic action-adventure. Bob Shaye, the former co-founder of New Line turned producer, will executive produce.

The project is very early in the stages with no directors on board and the studio took to half a year to search and hire Idoko for the job. Sources state that Warner Bros. plans on staying true to the light-hearted and even silly tones of the character. DC-based film production president Walter Hamada and Chantal Nong are overseeing for the studio.

The hero’s true identity is Patrick “Eel” O’Brian, a crook turned good guy. O’Brian was part of a gang, and during a botched heist is shot and — wouldn’t you know it — also doused with a chemical liquid. Left for dead by the gang, he awakens to find himself imbued with the power to shape-shift and stretch his body into almost anything, thanks to being the most malleable man alive. O’Brian eventually reforms and becomes a police officer.

I used to love Plastic Man, when I was a kid... So, Ill be very interested to see whether or not this can even get going, let alone who they cast, and such.

Chances are it'll suck anyway, but yeah, lets stick with Plastic Man.

I have never really being a fan of this character so I'm not really looking forward to this but I'm glad that DC is considering other projects that are not Batman related. This could be Warner Bros trying to quell the "panic" that the DCEU is in a bad state or "dead" by announcing upcoming projects to get fans excited.

This moving forward is going to depend a lot on the success of Aquaman and Shazam, especially. WB has a lot of DC movies "in development," and I doubt we'll see most of them.
