What? "View-Master" the Movie Coming Soon! See the "Star Trek" and "Transformers" Connection! 


"Star Trek" and "Transformers" franchise writers Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci are set to produce a film about...the View-Master! Yeah, you heard me right. A film about the click, click View-Master!

"Fringe" writer Brad Caleb Kane has been set to work on the script based on the funky toy that I used to own back in the day. I loved my View-Master but I'm still scratching my head on how they're going to incorporate this into a big movie adaptation.

DreamWorks had no comment about the project right now, but the studio is in talks to acquire the feature rights from Mattel, which owned the View-Master brand since 1997.

Will the movie be in 3-D? Stay tuned...but this is what we know. Kane posted in Twitter that "View-Master" will be very similar to the mood and feel of 1980s flicks such as "The Goonies" and "Young Sherlock."

Hhhhhmmmmm, a little treasure hunting in the plot maybe?
