Buck Rogers project in development
As Mike Fleming first reported, fighter pilot Buck Rogers is headed for the big screen for a 3-D feature. But don’t look for too many other details — the project, which will be helmed by Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson, is only in development. There’s no script, no budget, and no casting news yet, according to Anderson’s manager, who confirms the director is teaming up with Paradox, the company that controls the rights to Buck Rogers. “This is a development deal,” says Anderson’s manager. “He’s simply joining forces with Paradox to develop a screenplay, and then they’ll figure out what to do with the project.” On board to produce is Anderson’s longtime partner, Jeremy Bolt.
