Rumor has it that Disney is considering a reboot of the 1991’s retro adventure film, The Rocketeer.
The original 1991 comic-based film followed stunt pilot Cliff Secord (Billy Campbell) as he went up against the Nazis with the help of his jetpack. The Rocketeer, which was a disappointment at the box office, also featured such Hollywood stars as Alan Arkin, Jennifer Connelly, and Paul Sorvino, as well ex-007 Timothy Dalton.
Many have pointed out the obvious similarities between The Rocketeer and the much more successful Iron Man franchise. One can only wonder: Can the Rocketeer and his super backpack compete with Iron Man and his high-tech strap-ons. What do you think?
