Brendan Fraser as Flash Gordon.

Well?  Should I write the script and get the money?

EDIT: Wait.  Stephen Sommers has the rights.  No screenplay yet, though....hmmm...

...I need 6 months and an agent.

Are we talking a remake of the 80's-era gem or an entirely new project?

Stephen Sommers is slated to make a new Flash Gordon movie.
He was the guy who directed The Mummy.
Brendan Fraser was the lead in The Mummy.

You might get your wish.

My wish is to write, produce and direct, but....hey, I'll take what I can get.

Jeff -- I'm talking refurbishing, man.  Start with the classic comics and serials, take the best elements of everything along the way, turn that mofo up to 10.75 and see where we end up.

Saving 0.25 for the sequel, eh?  Very clever.

I just hope they don't fuck up the Zarkov casting. The rest is easy-peasey.

Brendan Frasier - under-rated?

I particularly enjoyed him in "Blast From the Past".

No, I think Brendan Fraser is perfectly rated, neither over nor under.  Encino Man and that one movie where the girl from Austin Powers played the devil have both shown us where he belongs in the canon of mediocre comedic actors.

I have to say, Brendan Frasier would indeed make the perfect Flash Gordon.

I'd also make Angelina Jolie as Ming's psychotic daughter.

What's wrong with Italian hotties? It worked in the Queen movie...

Monica Belluci. The Jolie for grown-ups.

Encino Man was a fucking great film!

"Check out the fresh nuggs, wheezing the juice, Ah-OOOOOO... Buh-ddy!"

Now THAT's dialogue.

Nowhere near as great as Bio-Dome, the Citizen Kane of Pauly Shore movies.

Pauly Shore and I have this routine we do, where he talks and I ignore him.

I'm getting tired of his part.

Yes, biodome was indeed the best movie pauley shore ever made.

'nuff said.

As to a new flash gordon movie, the one from the 80's wasn't so bad except the dye job on sam jones was so fake it made Seka's look natural. Max Von Sydow said he loved the role of ming as it let him totally cut loose.

Now, who to play Dr. Zarkoff? Why am I thinking Brent Spiner could do this? His Soong characters on  STTNG and Enterprise were good mad scientists. Then again I wonder if Patrick Stewart would be better for it, or maybe even for Ming....

Postulation: Yahoo Serious is bizarro Pauly Shore.
