FLASH GORDON Reboot In The Works At Fox

FLASH GORDON Reboot In The Works At Fox

"Flash...ah-ahh, he'll save every one of us!" It was only a matter of time I guess. THR report that Fox have a new take on the classic Flash Gordon comic strip planned, with Star Trek 3 writers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay on script duties. More after the jump.


THR confirm (Film Divider actually broke the news last week) that Twentieth Century Fox has nabbed the rights to Flash Gordon, the pulp comic strip hero who debuted back in the '30s. Most fans will remember the character from the cheesy, but entertaining, '80s movie which featured the now iconic "Queen" soundtrack. This reboot will be produced by John Davis and has up-and-coming scribes J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay on board to pen the script along with George Nolfi. Sony's Neal Moritz recently tried to get his own Flash Gordon flick off the ground, but to no avail.

So, who do guys think would suit the roles of Flash, Dale Arden, Hans Zasrkov, Ming the Merciless ..and possibly Lion-Man? Okay so they probably won't go near that cartoon! Sound off in the usual spot.
