Tippi Hedren accused Alfred Hitchcock of being “obsessed” with her in new memoir.
In case you were wondering, ’90s nostalgia shows no signs of slowing down. The next nod to the decade? A Captain Planet movie.
Originally a cartoon series titled Captain Planet and the Planeteers, now it’s getting the star treatment. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the movie version is in talks to be written by actor Glen Powell for Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way Productions.
Powell is probably best known for his role as Chad Radwell on Fox’s Scream Queens, but now he’s giving things a go as a writer. It’s unclear whether or not Powell will also be filling the shoes of the iconic role, but what is known is that he’d be joining both DiCaprio and Paramount if the deal is made.
The original series aired from September 1990 to December 1992 and focused on five characters from around the world who each had magical rings with the ability to control natural elements. When they unite together, they can summon Captain Planet, who helps them fight against the evils of the environment.
Apparently, Powell and fellow writer Jono Matt have a different plan. Their take on the classic occurs years after the original show, portraying the Captain past his prime and desperate, pining for the kids.
Already, we’re intrigued. Everyone just has to cross their fingers and hope that this dream team works out.

Kylie Jenner is feeling nostalgic – and taking fans on a trip back in time along with her.
The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan posted a “major throwback” to the very first episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on Instagram Saturday in honor of the ninth anniversary of the series’ premiere. Although they need no introduction nowadays, the 2007 clip shows each of the then-little known family members sharing their names and showing off their personalities in the household.
Kim Kardashian, now 35 and adding “West” to her name, introduces herself first as someone off-camera announces, “The princess is in the building.”
Khloé‘s sassy attitude is made apparent right away as she tells the camera, “My sisters say I’m a bitch, but I always have their best interests at heart.” Meanwhile, big sister Kourtney dubs herself the “oldest and the most mature.”
Kylie and Kendall Jenner are barely recognizable as their 10- and 11-year-old selves are shown cuddling up to their father, being silly in the front seat of a car and showing off some moves on a pole.
“We’re the modern day Brady Bunch with a kick,” Kim says as the video ends.
