“Major Matt Mason” will be about an astronaut who lives on the moon. He also works there and as such, has a very unique life.
The main character is an action figure which was popular in the 1960s. It also has a lot of supporting characters like a space crew, alien allies and villains.
The movie will be a live-action adaptation of “Major Matt Mason”, not an animation. So far it’s not known whether the movie will go a sci-fi route or if it will choose a more realistic and/or serious approach.
According to Variety, the movie is still in a very early stage. Only Tom Hanks and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman are “attached” to it. Mattel and Paramount are co-producing. There’s also no release date for the project for now. Still, it’s another movie project for Mattel which seems to be getting move and more involved into the movie scene.
