Flash Gordon to get a rewrite from Thor scribe

19 January 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in April it was announced that Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First ClassKingsman: The Secret Service) had entered talks with 20th Century Fox to direct the studio’s reboot of Flash Gordon, and now screenwriter Mark Protosevich (Thor) has announced on his Facebook page that he’s set to rewrite the script.

“I can’t wait to get started and if you’re curious about the take? I’m not saying a word,” states Protosevich (via HitFix). “All I’ll say is this – it will be nothing like any version of Flash Gordon you’ve seen.

The original draft for Flash Gordon was written by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay (Star Trek Beyond), from a treatment by George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau).

Flash Gordon 2 Just Took A Huge Step Forward

18 January 2016 1:21 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s been just over 25 years since Flash Gordon was released to mostly impressive reviews, as well as a healthy box office return. But, despite coming just three years after Star Wars: A New Hope and seven months after its sequel, The Empire Strikes Back, Flash Gordon never spawned any follow ups of its own. But that finally looks set to change in the very near future, because screenwriter Mark Protosevich has confirmed that he is currently hard at work on a Flash Gordon script for 20th Century Fox. Mark Protosevich took to his Facebook page (via HitFix) to make this revelation, confirming that the film would be unique from any other version of Flash Gordon that you.ve seen. However, he obviously stopped short of giving away any further details regarding the project, as that would probably have resulted in him being instantly dismissed. Protosevich wrote, I can »

Mark Protosevich signs up to pen a new draft of the upcoming Flash Gordon movie...

There are many mysteries in the world, but there are two that we find particularly vexing. One is how the endlessly entertaining and Mike Hodges-directed Flash Gordon film never got a sequel in the 1980s. The other is how we have gone well over 30 years without a proper live-action Flash Gordon movie (the Syfy series from a few years ago doesn't count).

But now Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, as well as an early draft of Thor) has just come on board as writer for a new Flash Gordon movie. 

Protosevich comes on board after a previous draft had been written by J D Payne and Patrick McKay. Things had been quiet on the Flash Gordon front since word came around last year that Matthew Vaughn was in talks to direct. »

Matthew Vaughn’s Flash Gordon Script Getting A Rewrite From Mark Protosevich

15 January 2016 12:37 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rumblings of a Flash Gordon reboot first stirred two years ago – when Star Trek Beyond‘s scribes were linked to the project – and last year made headlines when Kingsman: The Secret Service helmer Matthew Vaughn entered talks to direct. Since then things have been remarkably quiet on the blonde-haired hero front – until now. I Am Legend and Thor screenwriter Mark Protosevich has signed on to rewrite the screenplay, earlier versions of which were completed by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay.

The scribe hit up Facebook (via Hitfix) to announce the gig, dropping just enough hints to prompt much excitement – and of course, oodles of speculation:

“I can’t wait to get started and if you’re curious about the take? I’m not saying a word. All I’ll say is this – it will be nothing like any version of Flash Gordon you’ve seen.”

Matthew Vaughn’s ‘Flash Gordon’ Picks Up ‘Thor’ and ‘I Am Legend’ Screenwriter Mark Protosevich

15 January 2016 11:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Flash Gordon has been trying for years to make his way back to the big screen, without much success. He hasn’t actually been seen in theaters since 1980, unless you count Sam Jones‘ appearances in Ted and Ted 2. But maybe he’ll have better luck this time. The Flash Gordon movie got a big boost last year when Matthew Vaughn signed on […]

"Flash Gordon" Reboot Scores "Oldboy" Scribe

15 January 2016 9:45 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Oldboy," "Poseidon" and "I Am Legend" scribe Mark Protosevich has been hired to pen a new draft of the upcoming reboot of the "Flash Gordon" property at 20th Century Fox. Matthew Vaughn signed on to direct the project last year.

Protosevich revealed the news on Facebook (via Hitfix and says: "I can't wait to get started and if you're curious about the take? I'm not saying a word. All I'll say is this - it will be nothing like any version of Flash Gordon you've seen."

Protosevich certainly has sci-fi experience as he previously wrote early drafts of both "John Carter" and "Thor". J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay previously took a crack at the "Flash Gordon" script based on a treatment by George Nolfi. »

Mark Protosevich hired to rewrite Matthew Vaughn's 'Flash Gordon' for Fox

14 January 2016 10:40 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When George Lucas first broached the subject of following up American Graffiti, he proposed a bigscreen version of Flash Gordon, which was owned by Universal at the time. Instead, he went on to make the first Star Wars film for 20th Century Fox. Of course, Fox no longer has anything to do with Star Wars, which was sold to Disney, and Fox could use a little space opera magic of their own right about now. And, in no small bit of circular irony, it appears that it is the very property that sent George Lucas running to Fox in the first place that they're turning to for relief. On his Facebook page today, screenwriter Mark Protosevich announced that he's writing Flash Gordon for 20th Century Fox, with Matthew Vaughn attached to direct. That is just plain great news. Protosevich has been first guy in on any number of intriguing geek properties over the years, »
