"'Fringe' co-producer/writer Brad Caleb Kane will be writing a movie based on the View-Master toy, which first came on the market in 1939. He announced... that after he's done penning the sci-fi action-adventure Uprising for director Wolfgang Petersen and Columbia Pictures, he will take on the project for DreamWorks Pictures. Kane says Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci ('Fringe,' Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Star Trek) are behind the film and that it will be "like the old 80's Amblin movies: Goonies, Young Sherlock... In that vein."
Okay, this has me stumped. How on Earth do you make a movie about a toy that has no mythology to it (ala Transformers and G.I. Joe)? Let's hope that Kurtzman and Orci can work their magic on this toy.
