Gary Whitta, the man who wrote the first draft of the first Star Wars spin-off is putting the word around that he wants a crack at bringing The Last Starfighter back.
However, it seems that the rights aren’t for sale. At all. Under any circumstances. In fact, in the past, Steven Spielberg and Seth Rogen have both tried and failed to get them from Betuel.
There was a fabled script in 2008 called Starfighter which allegedly focused on the original character’s – Alex Rogan – son but it has long since slid into the mists of time and lore.
Whitta said: “I’m one of a very long list of screenwriters who would kill for the opportunity to bring that back.
“It just seems like the rights are impossible to figure out. Maybe one day. If there’s one thing that movie taught me, it’s to never stop believing that anything is possible. Even in Hollywood.”
Would it be on your wish list? A TRON-esque sequel, perhaps? As always. we want to know…
