One of the earliest CG-animated television series is getting the big screen treatment. According to The Hollywood Reporter, 1994's ReBoot is being redeveloped as a trilogy of feature-length films.
The original series told the extraordinary adventures of life within a computer. Dot Matrix and her brother Enzo, plus thousands of friendly binomes, lived in the city of Mainframe, which was plagued by viruses Megabyte and sister strain Hexadecimal. Guardian Bob is sent from the Net to protect them, and soon makes it his home. Together, they must prevent Megabyte from taking control of all the systems. As an added complication, games being played by the mystical User invade the system regularly, and must be defeated, or else portions of the city are laid waste.
Five untested writers were hired to prepare a pitch for the new ReBoot. These ideas will be posted on a website in conjunction with this year's Comic Con in San Diego. Fans will be able to log on and help with forming the story ideas. They will later vote on which idea sounds the best.
There is no word on when the first film would actually go into production.
