Flash Gordon is in the Works

May 22, 2008


The success of Ironman (thank god) has catalyzed several major studios to option characters and stories that they caneventually turn into franchises. Many, logically, are comic books. Sony, recently,secured Flash Gordon. 

Variety says that already onboard are the director from Sahara(which was a sandy delight even if Mcconaughey wasn’t) and Neil Moritz.

This should be pretty awesome.   Wired says that it’s what inspired GeorgeLucas to create Star Wars.  If we mixStar Wars (the real ones, not the cgi bile of late) with Ironman*, this is afilm I can get behind.  


*Nothing against Star Wars, but you could cross Ironman with my own grandma’s sex tape andI’d have an extra-large popcorn in hand.  Robot grandma sex is STILL robot sex.
