Buck Rogers!

As I wade through all the negativity surrounding Frank Miller’s adaptation of Will Eisner’s The Spirit, the light at the end of the tunnel has been the expectation that I’d hear an announcement that Miller would turn his attention to Sin City 2 as soon as his current project hit theaters.

But today, The Hollywood Reporter is Hollywood reporting that Miller may turn his attention to Buck Rogers, the iconic science fiction figure, instead.

Odd Lot, the production company that teamed with Miller for The Spirit, are looking into purchasing the rights. Now that Miller is attached, he’ll write and direct the feature.

Obviously, I’m stoked that Buck Rogers will be making it onto the big screen after a long history in almost every medium possible, but even I’m wary of Miller taking the reigns. I’m still reserving judgment on The Spirit, but it’s been buried by negative buzz and reviews, so the prospect of Miller getting his hands on another iconic property should cause a little handwringing. Plus, if he makes this his next project, we’ll have to wait even longer for a sequel to Sin City which is what got him into the film game in the first place.

What do you think? Are you excited to see Frank Miller tackle Buck Rogers? Scared to see him eviscerate a classic character? Would you rather him direct an adaptation of Duck Dodgers? Me, too.
