Film: Disney Is Rebooting The Rocketeer

In the age of reboots we live in today Disney is set to reboot The Rocketeer, not really surprising, yet I for one am excited. The project is in the early stages so not a lot is known yet. Reports say that it is set to be a “modern” “sequel-reboot” and headlined by a “black female character.”

The new take keeps the story in a period setting and offers a fresh view on the characters. Set six years after the original Rocketeer and after Secord has vanished while fighting the Nazis, an unlikely new hero emerges: a young African–American female pilot, who takes up the mantle of Rocketeer in an attempt to stop an ambitious and corrupt rocket scientist from stealing jetpack technology in what could prove to be a turning point in the Cold War.

Brigham Taylor Blake Griffin and Ryan Kalil are set to produce the film, with Max Winkler and Matt Spicer set to write the script. Overseeing the project for Disney is Tendo Nagenda and Chaz Salembier.
