With The Hunger Games and The Avengers succeeding where Geena Davis failed in making archery cool, the Jetpackery Industry may now get the film it so desperately needs. Disney has announced plans to reboot The Rocketeer.
Although it is awesome, the 1991 film was considered a flop at the time with a domestic box office haul of $46 million. Disney is meeting with writers to discuss an updated take on the classic character. No word yet on casting or particulars or whether or not The Rocketeer will use words like ‘swag’ and ‘YOLO’. All that is known is that with two The Rocketeers in the world, it’s going to get mighty confusing which is which when The Disney Channel re-airs the fuck out of them. (Vulture)
