New Popeye 3D Animated film coming

Variety have revealed that Sony Pictures are developing a CG Popeye movie. Avi Arad will produce the movie, while Mike Jones is in talks to write the script for the film.

The flick will be produced in 3D by Sony Pictures Animation, with Sony Pictures Imageworks handling the CG.

Arad told the trade that the new film will cover the themes of friendship, love, greed and life, and focus on human strengths and human frailties.

Popeye last appeared on the big screen back in the early 1980’s with Robin Williams in the lead role. That film was directed by the late, legendary Robert Altman.


Well, Mainframe already did a 3D TV movie of Popeye and it didn't fair so well, so Avi and crew better get the right script and director to make this work.

Popeye was once the most popular cartoon character in the world, but they aren't going to get that back unless they earn it.
