David Oyelowo to Produce Disney’s Reboot of The Rocketeer

David Oyelowo is set to din the producer hat for Disney’s reboot  of The Rocketeer, ‘The Return Of The Rocketeer’

The ‘Selma’ star will co-producer with his wife, Jessica Oyelowo under the Yoruba Saxon Production banner and  may also star in the 1991 action-adventure film.

The first instalment of the film, The Rocketeer, was based on the popular 1980s indie comic by Dave Stevens and, like Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark, was a loving homage to the serials of the 1930s and 1940s.

The story followed Cliff Secord, a stunt pilot who discovers a rocket pack and suit to die for and becomes embroiled with mobsters and Nazis, as well as Howard Hughes and the FBI. The Joe Johnston-directed movie starred Billy Campbell as Secord, Jennifer Connelly as his aspiring actress (a Betty Page homage) girlfriend, Timothy Dalton as an Errol Flynn-type actor who is a Nazi spy and Alan Arkin as Secord’s mechanic.

.Ed Ricourt will pen the screenplay for the reboot with Brigham Taylor also producing along with Yoruba Saxon..
