Buffy And Flight Of The Navigator Remakes Announced?


So yes the rumors were true, Buffy The Vampire Slayer is indeed making a cinematic comeback! But what's this? Joss Whedon has no involvement in the project? WHAT? Isn't Buffy his baby and hasn't he been fighting for another movie for God knows how long?

Taking a leaf out of the recent Star Trek re-boot Buffy will be a complete re-launch with no links to the old movie or series and won't feature any of the characters we know and love... Unfortunately for Joss When the original movie's director Fran Rubel Kuzui has held the movie rights since she discovered his script way back when and so far no writer, director or Hollywood studio has been chosen. Whedon's involvement isn't out of the question (supposedly), but it's just a matter of contacting him... so the question is "will they"? I certainly hope so!


Another re-boot heading to our cinema's very soon will be 'Flight of the Navigator', the old 1986 kids sci-fi film about a 12 year old boy who was abducted by aliens in 1978 and reappears some years later with no memory and not having aged at all. Secrets about the boys connection with the ship are revealed which leads to government attempts to exploit him. He takes control of the morphing alien ship and goes joyriding around the world with the ships controller Max and eventually gets reunited with his family...

I used to love this movie when I was younger and it was one of those memorable films that has some stand out visuals that will always stick in your mind like the ship, Max or the little creature...

I hope they do this one well and keep pretty close to the original storyline. If not it could end up being another 'The day the Earth stood still' failure...

Gotta love the morphing ship!
