Frank Miller (Sin City, 300, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) was attached to direct the upcoming Duck Dodgers Buck Rogers movie. Buried at the end of IGN‘s interview with Parodox Entertainment’s producer, Fredrik Malmberg, was this news:
Paradox, along with Lawrence Abramson and George Furla, is also producing the long-awaited big screen return of sci-fi icon Buck Rogers. Frank Miller, who was previously attached to direct an earlier incarnation developed by different producers, is no longer involved.
Translation: “We saw The Spirit. How did they make a naked Eva Mendes and Scarlett Johansson’s cleavage so boring, and is that Samuel Lee Jackson in a Nazi uniform? Aw hell no.”
Oh, but it is. It is.
