The Phantom Will Get Another Shot At The Big Screen

30 April 2014 8:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yes, what you’re looking at is a picture of a man in purple spandex riding a horse. That’s Billy Zane in costume as The Phantom, in the eponymous 1996 mega-flop from Paramount Pictures. Someone in Hollywood must have fond memories of the cult classic though, because the character is now getting another shot at the big screen.

Created by Lee Falk in 1936, The Phantom is a costumed crime fighter operating in the fictional African country of Bangalla. He doesn’t have any superpowers, and instead relies on his intelligence, strength and fearsome reputation of being an immortal ghost in order to conquer his foes.

Of course, he’s not a ghost, but in fact the twenty-first person to don the purple costume. The story begins in 1536, with a sailor named Christopher Walker. When Walker’s father is killed by pirates, he swears an oath to fight evil as the Phantom. »

Is 'The Phantom' Reboot Moving Forward with 'Narnia' Producer Mark Gordon?

The Tracking Board is reporting that producer Mark Gordon (The Patriot, Source Code, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair) is mounting a new adaptation of The Phantom, based on the beloved comic book character created by Lee Falk in 1936.

The original comic centered on the 21st version of The Phantom, whose background dates to the year 1536, when the father of British sailor Christopher Walker was killed during a pirate attack. He swore an oath on the skull of his father's killer to fight evil, which started The Phantom's legacy that would be passed from father to son.

The character has been adapted in the past, with a 1996 feature version of The Phantom starring Billy Zane as the title character, which famously bombed, earning only $17 million at the domestic box office from a $45 million budget. The feature did not even receive an international release. The Phantom was revisited in »
