Sam Jones says new Flash Gordon movie might be a sequel

Flash Gordon Sam Jones

We know FOX is developing a new FLASH GORDON movie, however according to Sam Jones it may not be a remake or a reboot, but a sequel to the 1980 film. Jones has been out promoting (and is the subject of) a new documentary called LIFE AFTER FLASH, and while speaking with Den of Geek the actor said he has been in contact with FOX's Matthew Reilly about the film.

Matthew Reilly (VP of production at Fox Studios) acquired the screenplay rights to Flash Gordon last year, and he hired John Davis and his staff to write the script. They’re looking to bring out a sequel actually. I met with Matt, we’re in talks about that. I’m very excited. A lot of people over the years, including Stephen Sommers and Neil H Moritz, have acquired the screenplay rights, but for whatever reason they did not do a follow up on the option. So I’m very excited about it.

While FOX could still do a FLASH GORDON sequel without Sam Jones, it does sound like he would star in it, based on his "We're in talks" comment. Perhaps it would only be a cameo with a different actor playing the character, but I'm sure there are quite a few people who would love to see Jones back on the big screen as Flash.

Seth MacFarlane's TED 2 starring Sam Jones opens on June 26, 2015.

I don't know

The 1980 film had beautiful production design, even if the script was a bit hammy. But Sam Jones is pretty old, and wasn't really that great of an actor to begin with.

Maybe if it had more Aura...

That movie doesnt hold up at all

But I sure enjoyed it as a kid. They should remake it, start over.

That Ted 2 clip was awful. First movie sucked, second looks the same.

On one condition...

As long as Dale still looks hot and dances erotically under a hypnotic spell, I'll go see it.

If this gets done he needs to be involved in some capacity. I've always liked this guy and thought he deserved a better career after that movie. Either way he is Flash and I hope this comes to fruition.

An interesting idea

Better a sequel than a reboot, but Sam Jones is looking a little on the high side for playing Flash as a full-on action role, and he doesn't have Liam Neeson's profile. I suspect they'll cast a younger Flash and give Jones a cameo.

It's taken a week to report on an interview on another website?

Most other sites reported this last week... Do keep up.
Anyway... Would rather see a sequel than a reboot and Sam Jones has to be in it as old Flash.

Whatever it turns out to be, either a sequel or a reboot, Flash Gordon Theme by Queen should be used again.
