Amanda Idoko (TV’s “The Mayor,” “Breaking News in Yuba County”) has been hired to pen the script for the comedic action-adventure feature “Plastic Man,” based on the DC Comics hero, for Warner Bros. Pictures.
The story follows Patrick ‘Eel’ O’Brian, a crook-turned-good guy who was part of a gang, and during a botched heist is shot and 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.
The character had his own cartoon series at one point. No writer or director is yet attached but the tone will reportedly retain the light, silly style of the character. Bob Shaye will executive produce.
