Frank Miller, and Odd Lot Productions are teaming up together on development deal that would see the return of the classic Sci Fi hero “Buck Rogers,” back on the big screen. It seems Frank wasn’t interested until Odd Lot came on board. (Odd Lot, is the production company behind the new Frank Miller film The Spirit.) Its likely Miller would write and direct Buck Rogers before he starts a Sin City sequel. While only sketches have been drawn at this point, Miller’s version is expected to be dark, with of course his trademark visuals and themes of corruption vs redemption. So far no word yet on what century Buck will wake up in.
I for one think this could be real cool, after The Spirit bombs, Frank’s gonna need a change of pace. I’ll give Buck Rogers, a (9 out of 10), on my “remake/reboot/reimagine” scale. (RRR)
