May 2nd, 2014 by Marc Comments

The Phantom is coming back! Em, yay?

Reports are coming in that the Mark Gordon Company and Management 360 are looking to reboot the classic serial hero, the Phantom and that executive producer Drew Simon is looking for a writer for the project.

The Phantom was last on the big screen played by Billy Zane (above) in 1996 and in 2009 syfy tried a new re-imagining series which was even worse than the Zane outing.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
