New Big-Screen Adaptation Of THE PHANTOM In The Works?

It is according to The Tracking Board anyway, though they tend to be hit-and-miss with their scoops. They report that a big-screen reboot of the DC Comics character created by Lee Falk is coming our way, with Ray Donovan producer Mark Gordon behind it.

Apparently Mark Gordon is bringing The Phantom back to the big screen. The cult  superhero has been the focus of countless tv, film, animated and comic book adaptations since his creation back in 1936 -- most recently a 2009 tv series that lasted only one season, and most memorably (though definitely not for the right reasons) the 1996 big-screen flop starring Billy Zane. That's not to say there's no potential there; the character has endured for good reason, and has appeared in a number of interesting incarnations over the years -- arguably the best being the Phantom 2040 animated series. This latest version has Drew Simon on board as executive producer for The Mark Gordon Company, and they are said to be currently looking for a new writer. Will you be glad to have "the ghost who walks" back? Or do you think he's had his day? Sound off in the usual place.
