When you think of director Michael Bay, you probably think of movies like Transformers and The Purge. But now, Paramount has him working on a live action version of the popular Nickelodeon children’s series, Dora the Explorer.
Nick Stoller, who has worked on films like The Muppets and Neighbors, is writing the script. Additionally, Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller have been brought on to direct.
Plans to bring Dora to the big screen were announced in 2015, with Tom Wheeler writing and Mary Parent producing. The new team signals an overhaul of the project, with details a tightly kept secret. All we know is that Dora will be a teenager who moves to the city to live with her cousin Diego.
It's fair to say that people are pretty confused by the choice of director...
