Mandrake the Magician Gets a Rewrite

Wheeler set to spruce up Warners' magician tale.

by Max Nicholson

June 18, 2012

poofle in Boots writer Tom Wheeler has been brought aboard to rewrite Mandrake the Magician for Warner Bros. and Atlas Entertainment.

Based on the original comic by Lee Falk, the story centers on an illusionist who has the power to hypnotize his foes at a remarkable speed. Along with his strongman companion Lothar, Mandrake combats evildoers, crooks and even aliens.

Over the years, many studios and personalities had tried to conjure this feature film, but with little success. Columbia Pictures did a 12-part serial in 1939, and a TV movie was made in the 1970s. But up until now, Mandrake had been collecting dust.

In addition to Mandrake the Magician, Wheeler is currently writing Trollhunters for DreamWorks Animation and director Guillermo Del Toro.
