Why Now Is The Time For The Rocketeer Sequel

In August, it was reported that, after years of attempting to get the project off the ground, Disney was, at last, moving forward with a sequel to the 1991 film The Rocketeer. With award-winning actor and producer David Oyelowo onboard, the premise of The Return of the Rocketeer involves a Tuskegee airman who unexpectedly inherits the jetpack of the original Rocketeer, Cliff Secord. Although the film is still in writing, Oyelowo went on record earlier this month saying that the sequel “[is] still in that 1940s milieu” – news that will please fans of the original.

The 1991 original was a near box office bomb – but there are good reasons for believing a follow-up will fare better.Read MoreMovieWeb – Feed
