Disney is developing a new live-action adaptation of the animated television series “Inspector Gadget”, created in 1983 by Bruno Bianchi, Andy Heyward and Jean Chalopin, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

The studio has signed “Saturday Night Live” writers Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell to write the script for a movie centered on the awkward cyber-cop. Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, creators of the recent “Aladdin” remake, will also be producing the project via their company, Rideback.

In the original version, Inspector Gadget works with the police to fight Dr. Claw, leader of the evil organization M.A.D. To solve his cases, Gadget is always helped by his young niece Sophie.

Disney brought out the first live-action film about the character, played by Matthew Broderick, in 1999. It was directed by David Kellogg; Rupert Everett played the villain.
