Joel Silver is set to develop a live-action feature film based on Cartoon Network's Ben 10 sci-fi franchise, with the possibility to distribute through Warner Bros.

Joel Silver said he aims to make the bigscreen version a potential franchise starter.

The show centers on the world of Ben Tennyson, a boy who can transform into 10 different alien creatures with the help of a glovelike device called the Omnitrix.

"I think we have to try something fresh and go at it in a way that stays true to the original material," Joel Silver said. "I have a 5-year-old and a 9-year-old, so it's somewhere between them."

Joel Silver and Dark Castle are currently seeking writers for Ben 10.

No production date has been set.
