Paramount Pictures has just announced that they are bringing “Max Steel” to the big screen. Max Steel was first introduced by Mattel in 1999, and the toy franchise was later developed into a TV series that ran from 2000-2003. Here is the premise:
After an accident, a 19 year old extreme sports enthusiast joins a secret agency after being infected with nanobots which makes him super human.
It almost sounds like a cross between the movie XXX and the TV show Jake 2.0. It makes you wonder after all of the cartoons, comics, and toy adaptations – is there any more original material out there?
