Multiple sources have reported this month that Mattel’s big screen adaptation of their popular toy line and animated series Max Steel is set to open production offices in Wilmington, North Carolina in January, with filming to begin in February.

It was announced back in September that Mattel would be teaming up with Dolphin Entertainment and Open Road Films to develop a live-action feature film based on the “Max Steel” character, to be written by Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World) and directed by Stewart Hendler (H+, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn).

Max Steel tells the story of teenager Maxwell McGrath and his alien pal Steelis, a duo that can combine “turbo-energy powers” to generate the superhero Max Steel.

First introduced by Mattel in the late 1990s, the franchise was rebooted earlier this year with a new animated series airing on Disney XD and a new toy line that hit shelves this past fall.

 The live-action film will be the first in a multi-picture distribution deal with Open Road Films

Max Steel will arrive in theaters in late 2014.
