Overlord director Julius Avery is going to make a new Flash Gordon movie

Over the past few years, there have been various attempts to make a new Flash Gordon movie. I had thought it would be stuck forevermore in development hell, but it seems that Fox are moving ahead.

They have put Julius Avery in the director’s chair. Avery is an Australian director who made his debut with Son Of A Gun, and he made Overlord for Paramount and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot. That’s the film that features WWII soldiers going up against zombie type creatures.

Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass) had been going to direct the film at one point, but he will now be producing.

There is no word on the tone of the film, but seeing what Avery has worked on in the past, I don’t think they will be going for the camp-tastic 1980’s version which featured Sam Jones as Flash.

For this new film, who would you like to see play Flash and Ming the Merciless?
