[adrotate banner=”1″]Maybe he didn’t choose it and he’s being forced into it, I don’t care, but Thomas the Tank Engine (particularly “The Railway Series”) is being developed into a film by HIT Entertainment. Shane Acker will direct (the article’s “Shane Acker (9) will direct” quote threw me for a loop as I briefly thought Acker was 9 years old, but it just means he directed the movie 9!) and the script will be written by Will McRobb, Chris Viscardi and Josh Klausner. McRobb and Viscardi are responsible for Pete and Pete and Kablam, so take from that what you will. The story:
“The tale will revolve around a pre-teen boy who has drifted apart from his father,” Acker explains, “The son is introduced into this world of Sodor, a place his father visited as a child but can’t remember. There is a bonding experience.”
So is this a darker Thomas the Tank Engine? Or just more grown up? And world of Sodor reminds me of World of Gor. If you don’t know what Gor is, consider yourself blessed.
We also have this boring art:
I wish this was being made into the Thomas the Tank Engine film instead:
I would buy 9 tickets so I could be completely surrounded by empty seats to enjoy this!
