The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop that Warner Bros. is working on a Plastic Man movie with Amanda Idoko as the screenwriter. Bob Shaye will executive produce.
The character was created by Jack Cole for Quality Comics in 1941 and DC Comics picked him up when the publisher went under.
Plastic Man is Patrick “Eel” O’Brian, a crook who goes good. A chemical liquid splashes him during a botched heist allowing him to shape-shift and stretch his body.
After years out of the spotlight, the character has come back within the past year as a key character in the recent event Dark Knights: Metal and two series. Currently, he’s starring in a comic miniseries written by Gail Simone as well as The Terrifics written by Jeff Lemire.
