'Flash Gordon' Alive at Fox!
Yep GORDON IS ALIVE! Following up the early reports that new screenwriters were being hired to pen a new movie, the Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision Blog has confirmed that 20th Century Fox and producer John Davis (whose credits include Chronicle and the upcoming Man from UNCLE movie) has nabbed the rights to Flash Gordon for a new feature film with J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay scripting the new film. No word yet on who will direct or when it will be released but the major question is will it avoid the camp and kitsch tone of the 1980 film? As long as they avoid giving Flash an Andrew Stanton style makeover :-) For more info hit http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/flash-gordon-movie-works-at-698291
