A movie based on the Mattel toy series Max Steel was previously in development at Paramount with Twilight star Taylor Lautner set to star as the titular character. Lautner later backed out, however. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dolphin Entertainment has now picked up the film rights from Mattel and are developing a live-action movie. Writter Christopher Yost will pen the screenplay with Stewart Hendler signed on to direct.

"Steel" began as a series of action figures in the late 1990s and went on to spawn two animated TV shows, a video game, several comic books, and nine direct to video animated films.

Max Steel is the ultimate aspirational teen hero with a secret. The story revolves around the trials and tribulations of a teenaged boy named Maxwell McGrath and his out-of-this-world alien companion, Steel. Both have super strengths and powers, Max with Turbo energy and Steel with alien intellect. When they combine forces to create Max Steel, the ultimate superhero is unleashed unlocking their inner heroes.
