Duncan Jones Teases “Rogue Trooper”?

Duncan Jones Teases Rogue Trooper

A few days back, “Moon” and “Warcraft” director Duncan Jones teased he was looking at doing a comic book adaptation as his next project, but didn’t say what property it would be. At the same time it was confirmed it would NOT be a DC Comics property.

Well now in a new Twitter posting, he seems to have revealed what it is – “Rogue Trooper”. Jones in the clip says it’s a planned take on a property in the 2000AD Mega-verse which includes properties like “Judge Dredd,” “Durham Red,” “ABC Warriors” and “Strontium Dog”.

It also specifically states it’s not Dredd, but something else before showing off a man’s mohawk from behind – leading to the natural conclusion he’s referring to “Rogue Trooper,” a sci-fi comic from Gerry Finley-Day and Dave Gibbons about Rogue, a genetically created, blue-skinned, manufactured super soldier on Nu-Earth which is mostly toxic now due to chemical and biological warfare.

In this world, a G.I.’s entire personality is downloaded at the time of death onto biochips for later retrieval. Rogue has his three former comrades chips with him attached to his equipment following a massacre. Rogue goes AWOL in search of the Traitor General responsible. What kind of adaptation Jones intends to yield, be it film or television or other, is unclear at this point.
