Hey, remember when we were told that Frank Miller was definitely not directing a new Buck Rogers movie? Looks like Flint Dille, one of the producers of the movie, was a little bit hasty when saying that Miller wasn't involved. The 25th Century may very soon be filled with futuristic femme fatales and unconvincing CGI backdrops.According to IGN, Rogers was indeed the character that producer Deborah Del Prete was referring to, when she said that Miller's next project would be revamping a classic sci-fi hero. More worryingly than the news that we should probably expect a future full of vampy women who just love to pout at our brave hero/director stand-in is the end of the IGN article:
We originally reported that Buck Rogers would be budgeted in the $40 million range. The cheapness of the low-budget effects will be a running joke in the movie, which will retain the campiness of the 1980s TV series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.
Frank Miller tries his hand at camp? This can't end well. Buck Rogers Update [IGN]
