The Phantom To Get A Sequel?


Something I'm happy to have come across is the news that the 1996 movie "The Phantom" starring Billy Zane in the main role, may be set for a sequel very soon. IMDB quotes the title of the movie as "The Ghost Who Walks" stating a 2009 release, other sites claim Billy Zane will reprise his role based on the good sales of the VHS and DVD sales since the film came out,and comingsoon.net has the following news:

"An Australian production company on Monday announced it had secured the rights to The Phantom Legacy, a follow-up to the 1996 film, The Phantom, which starred Billy Zane as the masked hero who fights evil from his jungle headquarters.

According to The Associated Press, the adaptation is expected to cost $87 million and will focus on "the Father/Son relationship, and what it means to be The Phantom," scriptwriter Tim Boyle said in a statement. "The film will be set in the present day and will deal with the concept of destiny."

Producer Bruce Sherlock, who also served as executive producer of the first "Phantom" movie, said the new film will be a marked improvement over its predecessor.

"It has the makings of a blockbuster," Sherlock said. "There's some surprises that will thrill the 'Phantom' fans worldwide." Sherlock's Sydney-based Sherlock Symington Productions won the rights to the film.

The movie will likely be shot entirely in Australia, with production set to begin within six to nine months, Sherlock said. Producers are in talks with several "top talent" Australian and American actors, Sherlock said. He declined to provide names".

I loved the original, yes yes laugh all you want, and I was always a fan of films like The Shadow and The Rocketeer so although this could turn out completely pants I'm still looking forward to seeing how it turns out...

SLAM EVIL!
