A Flash Gordon remake has been in the works for many years now and we still nowhere near a production date or even a finished script. Its been announced that Mark Protosevich will now tackle the script and give it a quick rewrite as 20th Century Fox who recently bought the rights, put things into action.
Its already been confirmed that Matthew Vaughn, fresh from the huge success of Kingsman-The Secret Service, is directing the film and Protosevich who scribed Thor is being bought in to give the script a quick polish.
“I can’t wait to get started and if you’re curious about the take? I’m not saying a word. All I’ll say is this – it will be nothing like any version of Flash Gordon you’ve seen.” he announced, obviously delighted at being involved.
After years of false starts, along with a recent very dodgy TV Show, with the gigantic success of Star Wars, expect this to be fast tracked as quickly as possible and we await more news with anticipation.
