FLASH GORDON Remake To Be Written And Directed By OVERLORD Helmer Julius Avery

Last we hard, Matthew Vaughn was in talks to direct 20th Century Fox's Flash Gordon movie, but the studio has now hired Overloard helmer Julius Avery to bring the pulp comic strip hero to the big screen.

By all accounts, Overlord is bloody awesome, and the horror flick's director has now lined up a huge project at 20th Century Fox.

According to Deadline, Julius Avery will write and direct a new take on Flash Gordon; a character he grew up reading about in the original comic strip back in the day. Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) had been on board to helm the project, but will now produce alongside John Davis.

Flash Gordon started out as a pulp comic-strip hero back in 1934, but most fans will remember the character from the cheesy, but entertaining '80s movie which featured the now iconic Queen soundtrack.

So, with a new director in place, who do guys think would suit the roles of Flash, Dale Arden, Hans Zasrkov and Ming the Merciless? Drop us a comment down below.

In an interview with Comic Book Therapy, the original Flash, John Wesley Shipp, talks about his role in the upcoming Flash show, dishing on Grant Gustin's performance and how exactly he was offered the role of the titular hero's father.
In the 90's, John Wesley Shipp ("Dawson's Creek") had a stint as the Scarlet Speedster on CBS' The Flash short-lived television series, and now he'll be playing Barry Allen's father in the CW's The Flash television series. Thoughts?
