According to reports, Twentieth Century Fox is looking to replace their coveted Lucasfilm "Star Wars" franchise, now in the hands of Disney, by securing screen rights to "Flash Gordon", the 1930's newspaper comics hero, that inspired the creation of "Star Wars" by George Lucas.
'Flash Gordon', a polo player and Yale University graduate and his companions 'Dale Arden' and 'Dr. Hans Zarkov' start their journey together as Earth is bombarded by fiery meteors. Zarkov invents a rocket ship to locate their place of origin in outer space.
Half mad, Zarkov kidnaps Flash and Dale and the three travel to the planet 'Mongo', where they discover the meteors are weapons devised by 'Ming the Merciless', »
