Scriptwriters Rudy Gaines
and John Rice
wrote a script showcasing the adventures of the Silver Surfer: he crash-lands on Earth, finds romance with a Brooklyn waitress, is de-powered into a human being by a secret government project, and is pursued by an unhinged US Army General. 20th Century Fox liked the script and Geoffrey Wright
was cast, but it was found to be too expensive to film. See more
