Hey Ben 10 Fans!
According to Variety, a live action full-length feature based on Cartoon Netowrk’s Ben 10 has been greenlit by Warner Bros, hoping that the new film will be the first in a new movie franchise. Joel Silver, producer of the 2008 live-action adaptation of Speed Racer, is helming the project, while scripting duties have been given to Albert Torres, who is fresh off the recently shelved Akira adaptation.
“I think we have to try something fresh and go at it in a way that stays true to the original material,” Silver said. “I have a 5-year-old and a 9-year-old, so it’s somewhere between them.”
“I tried to do (something similar) with Speed Racer and failed miserably,” he said. “You always learn more from the ones that don’t work than the ones that do work.”
According to Producer Steve Richards, the casting for the new Ben 10 movie will be completely different from the previous live-action incarnations, and that they want to go as big as possible with the project.
“We really see this as a large, big-budgeted tentpole movie,” Richards said.
The film is set to start filming in August and will be released at the end of next year!

Copyright to Toonbarn, thankyou for letting me use your article
what do you guys think? i hope the new movie will have new aliens!
This isn't old news at all. We found out that Joel Silver had signed on to produce a Ben 10 movie ages ago, but it was never officially greenlit. This article confirms that the film has finally got the official go-ahead.
and that there is a writer.
I heard about this, could be awesome or horrible. I mean I know it'll be better than the first 2 live action movies, but I'll wait to make judgement when i see a trailer
lets hope its gonna be good!
Yes I hope it's based on ultimate alien because at the end of the year omniverse will have started and I've been waiting for an ultimate alien one for ages.
i hated the text in blue........ow
Man just make the text white. My eyes are dying right now.

Did you know that the company that produces this film (Dark Castle Entertainment) has never made anything but horror films, for instance theyhave produced "Spliced" and "Orphan!"
