Fox Bringing 'Flash Gordon' Back To The Big Screen
From The Playlist
It should come as no surprise in this current age of tentpole filmmaking, where studios are hoarding every pre-existing property they can get their hands on, that we’d eventually get to a point past diminished returns, where it makes no sense to repackage a film/TV show/what have you for modern audiences since the property is so obscure or dated that most audiences won’t care or even fail to recognize it. Yet here we are, at a point were there are serious plans to bring back “Flash Gordon” to the big screen.
THR reports 20th Century Fox has nabbed the rights to the original Alex Raymond-created pulpy science-fiction comic-strip series with “Star Trek 3” co-writers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay set to write the hero’s newest silver-screen adventure based off a treatment from “The Adjustment Bureau” filmmaker George Nolfi. If you’re familiar with the hero’s name, chances are you’re more familiar with the campy 1980 Dino De Laurentiis-produced and Queen-scored film that boasted a cast that included Timothy Dalton and Max von Sydow, than from ever actually reading a single frame of the strip.
