ComingSoon.net got a chance to speak with rapidly rising star Tyrese Gibson at the Death Race junket in San Diego on Sunday. We’ll have the full video interview soon, but he did fill us in on another big project for him that will hopefully be happening the near future: Thundercats!
Tyrese said that he’s been very involved in the attempt to bring the classic ’80s cartoon series to the big screen and seemed to hint that a deal is very nearly complete. We asked him what character he’d be playing and he just smiled and said that there’s a number of options on the table.
Late last year, the project was announced as a CG-animated feature at Warner Bros. Pictures that would be directed by video game veteran Jerry O’Flaherty. Whether that still stands is unknown.
Look for the full interview soon!
