Per Deadline, Amazon Studios has ordered a pilot to relaunch the cult classic property The Tick with a new take on Ben Edlund’s superhero spoof.
Edlund will write and executive produce on the project and two cast members have already signed on-board: Griffin Newman will play Arthur, The Tick’s moth-garbed sidekick and Valorie Curry will step into the role of Dot Everest, the sister of the title hero.
Long-time Christopher Nolan cinematographer, and Transcendence director, Wally Pfister is in negotiations to direct.
Sadly, Patrick Warburton is not expected to reprise his leading role from the 2001 FOX produced adaptation.
As a huge fan of the 1994 animated series, all I can say is….SPOON!
