Frank Miller is no longer on board the planned big-screen return of space pilot Buck Rogers, it's been revealed.

Miller co-directed Sin City, adapted from his own comics, and more recently helmed comic strip adaptation The Spirit. He also wrote the graphic novel on which Zack Snyder's 300 was based.

Last year he became involved with the Buck Rogers project reportedly because he knew the head of the Dille Trust which had owned the rights before they were acquired by Nu Image/Millennium Films.

As I reported at the time, Miller was set to direct the feature and make it a much darker, edgier version than the 1979-1981 TV series starring Gil Gerard and Erin Gray.

Paradox Entertainment, along with Lawrence Abramson and George Furla, is producing Buck Rogers.

Paradox president and CEO Fredrik Malmberg told IGN that Miller was attached to direct an earlier incarnation developed by different producers and is no longer involved. »
