Sony Pictures Animation's Popeye, once the dream project of filmmaker Genndy Tartakovsky, seemed to have sunk back in March of last year. Well Popeye fans, it may not be time to abandon ship just yet.
it seems that Sony is still keen to keep the project afloat and have hired a new writer for the project, and if his name is any indication the movie still has a chance to launch. T.J. Fixman, the writer of the upcoming (previously announced as a 2015 release) Rachet & Clank animated film, has been hired pen Popeye.
It's unknown if this charts a completely new course for the movie, and an ETA is still forthcoming, but it seems that the sailor may still see an animated adventure on the big screen in the future.
