Popeye The Movie

If you’ve been craving a feature length version of kids fave Popeye and you’re bored of the old school 2D then it looks like your luck might just be in: Sony have announced plans to bring the spinach eating sailor to the silver screen in 3D.

The big screen version will be an animated feature length film and will be produced by Spider-Man producer Avi Arad. Arad broke the news to Variety: ‘What always blew me away is the level of the animation. It was so beautiful and unbelievably detailed.’ And to make him sound like he’s the right man for the job / a bit of a weirdo [delete where applicable] he confessed his undying love for the classic cartoon admitting he’s an ‘unabashed, lifelong Popeye fan’.

This isn’t the first time Popeye has had a movie makeover; in 1980 Robert Altman directed a live action version staring Robin Williams. No, we haven’t seen it either.
