90s animated cartoon series Gargoyles is set to get a live action reboot from legendary horror director James Wan.
The logline for the new series, which is in early development, reads: "Based on the cult classic Disney animated series, the reboot centres around Goliath, the last of a heroic race of gargoyle warriors who once lived among mankind.
"Free from a centuries long curse that turned him into stone, Goliath struggles to solve the mystery of his past while watching over modern-day New York City alongside police detective Elisa Maza."
Dauberman will join Wan and Michael Clear as executive producers of the series, whilst also fulfilling duties as writer and showrunner.
The original Walt Disney Television Animation series aired from 1994 to 1997. Co-created by Greg Weisman, the series revolved around gargoyles who were awakened after being trapped for thousands of years in medieval Scotland. The voice cast included Keith David, Sally Richardson and Ed Asner.
Previously speaking to Collider, he said: "Gargoyles is still my baby. I don't own it. I don't get a dime off of it being on Disney+. Yet I'm so thrilled that it is. I'm thrilled that it represents a chance — even if it's a slim chance — to bring it back."
He also revealed that he has future storylines already plotted out: "I've got a timeline for the show that's 315 pages long," he admitted. "I've got notebooks and comp books full of ideas for it. Spin-off notions and all sorts of things. Literally nothing would make me happier than to go back and do more Gargoyles..."
Gargoyles is streaming on Disney+, whilst further details of the reboot are yet to be announced.
