Variety reports that Nu Image/Millennium Films has acquired the rights to bring Buck Rogers to the big screen. Previously the film rights were held by Disney, but the Dille Trust, which owns the character, turned the rights to Nu Image because it felt the Trust could have more control over the film.

Hopefully, Millennium will bring a new take on the classic tale, and moves us well away from the NBC series from the 1980s.
