Buck Rogers In The 21st Century

Nu Image/Millennium Films has acquired film rights to the long-running “Buck Rogers” franchise and is planning a live-action feature film says Variety.

The character is a former pilot who falls into a coma and awakens in the 25th Century where he battles evil.

Buck Rogers has appeared in books, comics, movies, radio and television since the 1920s, most notably the 1939 Buster Crabbe film and the short-lived 1970’s TV series.

Millennium disputed than any creatives had yet aligned to the project, cutting down an IGN Movies report of Frank Miller’s involvement.
