Leonardo DiCaprio Set to Produce 'Captain Planet' Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio and his production company Appian Way Productions are teaming up with Paramount to bring Captain Planet to the big screen.

The 41-year-old actor and environmentalist is looking to revive the 1990′s cartoon which centered on five young people who were given magic rings with the power to control natural elements.

Together the group can summon Captain Planet, a superhero who assists them in the fight against environmental evils.

According to THR, the story would take place years after the original series and focus on a washed-up Captain America who needs the team of kids more than ever.

Jono Matt and Scream Queens star Glen Powell are being eyed to write the script.
