Sony has announced that it has signed writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless to pen the next big screen adaptation of Flash Gordon.  The update to the series has been passed around from Universal back to Hearst owned King Features Syndication, and now finally to Sony, who picked up the rights a few months ago.

Joining the writers are producer Neal Moritz and director Breck Eisner.

There are a lot of people who still have an affection for the 1980′s Flash Gordon flick, those that get a kick out of Buster Crabbe’s 1930′s serial, and not a single person I know that likes the Sci-Fi Channel’s attempt at a reboot.  This brings us to the question of the day; will audiences take to a new Flash Gordon?
