Flash Gordon’s reboot back in the works with a new director

Set up years ago as a Matthew Vaughn project—though somehow after John Carter’s box office performance—Paramount’s Flash Gordon reboot is back on the works. According to Deadline, the pulp serial will now return to screens by way of Julius Avery, director of the studio’s upcoming Overlord. Avery will write and direct the film, and it’s said he grew up loving Flash Gordon comics, selling his own pitch for the oft-campy sci-fi saga. Perhaps we’ll at last see the vision your grandpa imagined in his radio serials.
