Frank Miller Helming Buck Rogers

Frank Miller and Odd Lot Entertainment, the creator and production company behind upcoming The Spirit are close to teaming again on the classic sci-fi property Buck Rogers.

Odd Lot is in negotiations to option the rights to "Rogers" from Nu Image/Millennium, which obtained those rights this year from the Dille Trust. Millennium is expected to get a credit on the movie but won't be involved in day-to-day production.

Miller will write and direct his own big-screen take on the comic serial; while the creator has only begun to sketch ideas, it's expected to be a darker take, with many of Miller's signature visual elements and themes, such as corruption and redemption.

Not the biggest fan of Duck Rogers, but I have seen Daffy Duck portray the character on Looney Tunes and enjoyed what he did with it. I think Miller should just concentrate on Sin City 2 first before directing this. I think we have waited long enough for a sequel to one of the best films of 2005.
