write the screenplay to bring MICRONAUTS to the screen for Paramount Pictures and JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions.

Currently owned by Hasbro, the Micronauts were orginally brought to the U.S. by the Mego Corporation in 1976,   adapting the Microman toy line created by Takaraare, a  Japanese toy company later taken over by TOMY.

The Micronauts became a Marvel Comic in 1977, and in later years other companies such as Image Comics had short runs with the characters.

Interestingly, some of the Marvel-created comic book characters were used in other titles, with their Micronauts connection unmentioned.
