Mighty Mouse Is On His Way

Paramount Pictures is planning a cinematic reboot of animated hero “Mighty Mouse” reports The Los Angeles Times.

Though several scribes have attempted a film adaptation in the past, the studio is currently seeking a new writer and director with a “number of up and comers on the list” to helm.

Originating as a crime-fighting super-mouse in the 1940s which satirised the popular “Superman” comics, the character became most famous for the cartoon serials which ran for over three decades up through until the late 1980’s.

A 2013 release is planned.
