Paul W.S. Anderson (“Event Horizon,” “Resident Evil”) has signed on to direct a new 3D adaptation of sci-fi hero “Buck Rogers” reports Deadline New York.
‘Rogers’ started as a radio program in the 1920s and scored a new generation of followers when it was turned into a famous cult TV series in the late 70’s.
Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (“Iron Man”) will pen the script about a pilot who becomes trapped in the 25th Century and must use his skills to ward off enemies.
Jeremy Bolt, Fredrik Malmberg, Larry Abramson and George Furla will produce.
