Sony Pictures is developing a CG Popeye feature to be released in 3D.
The storyline is being kept under wraps, but Popeye's love interest Olive Oyl, nemesis Bluto and adopted child Swee'Pea will be part of the adventure.
Created by E.C. Segar, Popeye first appeared in the already established "Thimble Theater" comic strip in 1929. Introduced as a walk-on character, Popeye eventually became the strip's star. In 1933, The Fleischers produced animated Popeye cartoons through the 1940s. T.J. Fixman
