Buck Rogers set to return.

Is Buck Rogers set to return? The Hollywood reporter states that after months of negotiations, that Legendary Film Studios is putting together the final pieces on a deal for the screen rights to the sci-fi character.

Legendary, the company behind upcoming sci-fi epic Dune and movies such as Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island, is said to be envisioning a big-screen version of the character’s adventures that would also then pave the way for a television series and also an anime series.

Don Murphy and Susan Montford are said to be in line to produce via their Angry Films banner, whose credits include Transformers and Real Steel.

Legendary has yet to comment. The deal would be something of a coup for Legendary and Murphy, who have spent years waging legal battles for rights to the character.
