Renowned Northern Ireland filmmaker Sir Kenneth Branagh has signed on to direct a new live-action Gargoyles movie, the Belfast Telegraph is reporting. The upcoming feature film will be based on the animated 1990s television series of the same name.
The live-action movie has been widely anticipated since the original show concluded. A concept was originally created for a feature film adaptation, but was latter scrapped, after the series concluded. Then in 2011, the writing team of David Elliot and Paul Lovett (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) was hired to pen a new script for the movie.
The Gargoyles series, which premiered in 1994, ran for three seasons, with a total of 78 episodes. The show was renamed Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles in its final season.
