Genndy Tartakovsky Adds Popeye To Samurai Jack Movie On His To Do List

Showing some confidence in Hotel Transylvania, Sony have routed its director Genndy Tartakovsky to hop over and develop and direct their 3D Popeye movie. This is likely to cause, or at least exploit, further delay for his Samurai Jack picture.

I'd like both, please. And a revival for the old Popeye arcade game. It may have been rubbish but just seeing that cabinet again would bring a nice smile to my face.

My top tip for a Popeye toon? Hire Robin Williams to do the voice. That much he did superbly last time around.

And I hope they're not frightened to push the stylisation of the animation and designs. Popeye will work superbly in a more graphic style.
