….Starfighter Project?!

"One of my favorite 1980s films as a boy and now is 1984's The Last Starfighter. From the powerful score, the excellent Gunstar fighter, and the story of a gamer that is transformed into a space fighter gunner, The Last Starfighter is a wonderful military science fiction that holds up to this very day. There have been rumors for decades of a sequel, but it has never materialized, but that seems to be about to change…maybe. Gary Whitta, the writer of Rogue One, dumped four concept art by Matt Allsopp images on his Twitter today informing all of us that the dream of another adventure in this universe may be coming…and it looks amazing! Whitta is working with the original writer of the film, Jonathan Betuel, to reboot the 1984 film into a modern movie…which is a big concern of mine. The original is so good…why not expand it with a sequel? It seems from an interview on io9, Gary Whitta is a big fan of the original and wants to do this passion project right. However, there are two hills to overcome: the rights to the IP, which are a mess and Seth Rogen is involved. Ugh. Either way, the images are a masterpiece and give us a peek into the world of the Star League…."
