It was recently announced that we will be seeing the hit character Bananaman coming to the big screen and it looks like things are moving ahead much faster than first expected. The script for the Bananaman movie is now well underway and it looks like they have decided to make a few tweaks to the original character.
While the original Bananaman characters is a young boy who turns into the superhero when he eats a banana, it looks like the movie is changing things up and having the character as a man who becomes the superhero when he eats a banana. The reason we say this is because Matt Damon has been cast in the lead role for the Bananaman film.
The original Bananaman character was always accompanied by his trusty companion Crow, while he took on villains such as Doctor Gloom, Skunk Woman, Captain Cream and Witchy Woman. It will be interesting to see which of these villains will appear in the first Bananaman movie and who will be cast in the role of the villain. We will just have to wait and see.
There is no news yet on who will direct the Bananaman movie but it is expected that, with the script almost complete and casting already beginning, we will be given a director soon enough. The Bananaman film is expected to begin shooting towards the end of this year, with a possible 2015 release date on the cards, although that could be subject to change.
Do you think Matt Damon is right for Bananaman?
