“Fringe” co-producer/writer Brad Caleb Kane will be writing a movie based on the View-Master toy, which first came on the market in 1939.
He announced on his Twitter account that after he’s done penning the sci-fi action-adventure Uprising for director Wolfgang Petersen and Columbia Pictures, he will take on the project for DreamWorks Pictures.
Kane says Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (“Fringe,” Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Star Trek) are behind the film and that it will be “like the old 80’s Amblin movies: Goonies, Young Sherlock… In that vein.”
The viewers have changed quite a bit over the years, but for a history of the toy, you can go here. Fisher-Price’s official site for the View-Master is here.
