Manimal is Getting a Movie
I have never seen Manimal. I have no opinion on Manimal. The show launched 1983 and ran for eight episodes before it was cancelled. It was about a man who could turn into any animal he wanted to help the police fight crime, but I guess he had a thing for hawks and panthers since he turned into one every episode. I don’t why I haven’t seen Manimal. It seems like something I would either like or ironically like. Maybe I’ll get my chance to have an opinion on it before Sony releases the movie they’re making based on the series.
Sony Pictures Animation recently picked up the rights to the series and are developing it into a live action/CG hybrid movie. Glen A. Larson, the creator of the show and producer of Magnum P.I. and the original Knight Rider and BSG, is attached to produce the film.
Sony has sent out the word and are looking for writers to take on this project.
