Paramount Pictures have acquired the rights to turn “Beyblade” into a live action feature at Disruption Entertainment.
“Transformers” creator Takaratomy developed and manufactured Beyblade, a line of customizable toys modeled after traditional Japanese fighting tops.
The toys have spawned multiple TV series, animated features and video games in markets around the world and have generated $2.5 billion in revenue. They were licensed to Hasbro in 2001 and retitled as “Metal Fusion” back in 2009.
Mary Parent will produce.
