The big-screen version of Ben 10 has found its scribe.
Up and coming writer Ryan Engle will pen the script for the film based on the hit Cartoon Network series.
Ben 10 revolves around a teen named Ben who comes to possess an alien watch named the Omnitrix that lets him morph into 10 different monsters.
Created initially as an animated series in 2008, there have been four permutations of the show as well as five live-action TV movies. And while the show has been popular, even winning two Emmys, it’s proven to be a worldwide merchandising bonanza, with more than $2 billion in retail sales ranging from video games to comic books.
Engle’s script On a Clear Day got on the Black List, paving the way for him to write New Line’s adaptation of the Rampage video game and New Regency’s The New West, based on a comic from Black Bull Media.
