Joel Silver has signed on to develop a live-action feature film based on Cartoon Network's sci-fi franchise "Ben 10" which Warner Bros. Pictures would almost certainly distribute says Variety.

Both the cartoon series and live-action TV movies have scored strong ratings on the toon network and Silver says the aim is to make a potential franchise launcher.

The story follows Ben Tennyson, a boy who can transform into ten different alien creatures with the help of a glovelike device called the Omnitrix.

The new film would not include any of the actors from the previous live-action small screen movies as Silver and producer Steve Richards aim to create a large, big-budgeted tentpole movie.
