Buck Rogers On The Big Screen?
It’s one of those projects that has been talked about for years, without anything ever happening. Could it be that finally, Buck Rogers – everyone’s favourite fighter-pilot turned space-hero – might at last be hitting the big screen?
It seems that Paul WS Anderson (director of Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, Death Race) is planning to bring Mr Rogers back to younger audiences (bearing in mind Buck’s been around since the 1920s). Along with his production partner Jeremy Bolt, he has successfully convinced rights holders Paradox that they’re the men to bring Buck into the 21st century. And, of course, it’s going to be in 3D.
So the question now is which version of Buck’s tale will they pick up from? Considering how long the character’s been around for, there must be a lot of different option on offer. Ice-cave? Lost in space? only time will tell.
