Ryan Reynolds Co-Producing Biker Mice From Mars Series
Ryan Reynolds is getting behind the wheel of a new animated series coming our way as he will co-produce an upcoming Biker Mice From Mars series! Deadline reports that Reynolds and Nacelle are teaming up to bring the 90’s classic back to life. Maximum Effort is stepping up its game with content with many projects in the pipeline including a horror film. Fubo has also signed on as a producer on the project.
The original series ended 27 years ago, but the Rick Ungar animated series has been a popular pop-culture franchise for as long as the Biker Mice have been around. Now that 90s nostalgia is back in full swing with other popular characters such as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, it looks like it’s time for a revival.
If you are unfamiliar with the trio of Biker Mice, here is the synopsis of the series:
“On the planet Mars, there existed a race of anthropomorphic mice who enjoyed motorsports and had a very similar culture and society to that of human beings. Eventually, they were all but wiped out by the Plutarkians, an alien race of obese, foul-smelling, worm-eating, fish-like humanoids who plunder other planets for their natural resources.”
Reynolds shared his love of motorcycles and how that fueled his joining the project, saying:
“Some people know that I am a motorcycle enthusiast, so it was only natural for us to jump on board with Biker Mice from Mars. Maximum Effort and Fubo look forward to putting a new spin on this cult classic with our friends at Nacelle.”
Debuting in 1993, Biker Mice From Mars not only invaded our TV screens but led to a long line of action figures and toys that had us all doing chores and begging our parents as we looked to collect Throttle, Modo, and Vinnie alongside all their friends.
What do you think about the Biker Mice From Mars making a comeback? There was a brief comeback in 2006 that had the Biker Mice riding for 28 episodes before the beloved franchise faded back into memory. Here is hoping Reynolds and his new friends can put together a new adaptation that will have all fans old and new revving their engines alongside the Martian mice.
