Producer Joel Silver
, The Matrix
series) is planning a reboot of Swamp Thing
, an obscure DC Comics character that has previously been adapted for two feature films and a short lived live action television show. The folks over at Empire
caught up with Silver at a recent junket, where they got this:
"It's a movie we've [Silver Pictures] had for a long time. We think we'd like to do it in 3D."
The character was created by Len Wein
and Berni Wrightson
, but saw a Renaissance when famed comic book writer Alan Moore
(V For Vendetta
) took the reins of the series. In the film world, Wes Craven's
1982 Swamp Thing
and it's sequel The Return of Swamp Thing
proved difficult to find mass appeal and has left the character dormant for many years.
What do you think about a reboot of Swamp Thing? Is Joel Silver the right man for the job? Should it even be done?
