Graphic novel legend, writer, and director Frank Miller may be bringing his interpretation of the campy comic serial Buck Rogers to the big screen. According to THR, Miller and Odd Lot Entertainment are nearing a deal to bring Buck Rogers into the 21 century.
Odd Lot, the shingle run by Gigi Pritzker and Deborah Del Prete, is in negotiations to option the rights to “Rogers” from Nu Image/Millennium, which obtained those rights this year from the Dille Trust. Millennium is expected to get a credit on the movie but won’t be involved in day-to-day production.
ABC had a TV series in the ’50s, and NBC produced a feature film and TV series in the late ’70s and early ’80s, which imagined the space explorer as someone who woke up in the 25th century to find Earth destroyed and was then consigned to roam distant planets.
So what do you think? Are you ready for some dark shadows, intense red’s, and eye popping CGI effects to engulf your favorite intergalactic traveler?
