If you think Hollywood is done with remakes and reboots, you better think again. Fox is planning a remake of the iconic 80s sci-fi film (which itself is based on a comic book series), according to the Hollywood Reporter. For the uninitiated, Flash Gordon follows the adventures of the titular hero, who is the only thing standing in the path of the evil Ming the Merciless and his equally evil schemes.
According to THR’s report, Fox has decided that now is the time to give the story an update, with Star Trek 3 writers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay tapped to work on a script. There’s still no information regarding the storyline, but come on – it’s Flash Gordon. There’ll be a spaceship in it, and maybe some scenes in outer space.
