Plot details are being left to the imagination for the time being, but the plan is to make the feature a live-action/CG hybrid.

Justin Springer, whose credits include Tron: Legacy for Disney as well as Oblivion, is producing. Louie Provost is overseeing for the studio.

Henderson is a scribe who hails from the TV world. He was a writer and co-executive producer on USA’s White Collar, which stars Matt Bomer. He was also a writer and co-exec producer on the J.J. Abrams-produced Almost Human and on USA’s Graceland. He also recently sold a pilot to USA.

Ninjago, which is acting as his feature debut and is based on the Lego toyline, is in preproduction and has a Sept. 23, 2016, release date scheduled.

Henderson is repped by CAA and The Cartel. Bean is repped by Verve.
