Last month it was announced that Transformers producer Don Murphy had teamed up with Cartoon Network to develop a live-action movie based on the superhero Captain Planet. Originally appearing in an animated series in the early '90s called Captain Planet and the Planeteers, the show revolved around five teens from around the globe who were each given a ring that contains the power to control an element of nature. When put together, these rings have the ability to summon Captain Planet, who will come and help the teens when problems arise on earth that are too big to be solved by one ring alone.
There's no word on when the live-action film will hit theaters or who will star as Captain Planet, though Funny or Die was kind enough to piece together their own live-action version of Captain Planet starring Don Cheadle ... and, well, it's pretty awesome. Check it out below.
