T.J. Fixman To Pen New “Popeye” Script

“Ratchet and Clank” creative force T.J. Fixman has been brought in to pen “Popeye,” the 3D CG animated feature adaptation of the beloved sailor character in the works at Sony Pictures Animation.

David Ronn and Jay Scherick (“The Smurfs”) previously worked on the script about the spinach-loving seaman who appeared in the classic 30’s comic strip and was previously adapted for the big screen by Robert Altman in 1980.

“Samurai Jack” creator and “Hotel Transylvania” director Genndy Tartakovsky was also previously attached to direct but dropped out in March last year due to a regime change at Sony.
