The Last Starfighter (Reboot Movie)

Rogue One's Gary Whitta Tells Us His Plans for a
Last Starfighter Reboot:

"On Twitter, Rogue One and Book of Eli screenwriter Gary Whitta just dropped a huge
bombshell: Heís working with Jonathan Betuel, the writer of The Last Starfighter, to
finally try and reboot it for the big screen. We reached out to learn more, and Whitta
told us why now is the perfect time to bring it back."

"In all the years hence, whenever Iíve brought up the idea of a Starfighter reboot in
meetings, people would always convey excitement and then say that itís impossible
because the rights are a mess. Itís true that itís not simple, but part of the key to it is,
as I understand it (and Iím not a lawyer), Jon still retains some piece of ownership of
the original IP, so no one can make a new movie without his participation. I happened
to track Jon down, and after I was done pestering him with all my fanboy questions
about the original film we started to talk about what a new version might look like.
Since then weíve spent so many hours working on it Iíve long since lost count, but
right now we have a fully developed story that is a combination of reboot and sequel
that we both think honors the legacy of the original film while passing the torch to a
new generation. Weíre both very excited about it creatively."
