Warner Bros. has hired Jerry O’Flaherty to direct the CG-animated Thundercats film based on the ’80s cartoon, comicbooks and toy line.

The project marks the first feature directing gig for O’Flaherty, who served as an art director on such bestselling games as “Gears of War” and “Unreal Tournament 3” for Epic Games and the “Command and Conquer” series from Westwood Studios.

The director will now work with scriptwriter Paul Sopocy to get a script together.

    What¡? The reason why many cartoon or comic based movies fail is the director and the writer. Sincerely, I expected more, since they are the Thundercats, Ho!
