Flash Gordon Will Return To Save Every One Of Us In New Film
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.22.2014

The Savior of the Universe is back. According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox has finished a deal to get the rights of pulp comic strip Flash Gordon for a new feature film. That's right. Flash Gordon will once again stand for every one of us.

John Davis (Chronicle, Man from U.N.C.L.E.) will produce with a script by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay (Star Trek 3). Davis has been trying to get the rights for over a year from the Hearst Corporation, using his discretionary fund to do it. He hired George Nolfi (The Bourne Ultimatum) to write a treatment for Payne and McKay. Nolfi will also produce.

Gordon was created in 1934 by artist Alex Raymond. He's just a man, with a man's courage, who ends up with Dale Arden and mad scientist Hans Zasrkov on the planet Mongo fighting its ruler Ming the Merciless. The strip was previously adapted into three serials starring Buster Crabbe and a 1980 film starring Sam Jones, Timothy Dalton, Max von Sydow and Chaim Topol. The film updated Gordon's story from a former polo player to a former football player.

Hollywood has been trying to make a new film for a long time. The rights were previously at Universal, Mandalay and Sony. Neal Moritz tried to adapt the film at Sony. Fox executive Matt Reilly brought the project to the studio and will oversee.
