The Rocketeer Getting Remade?

While The Rocketeer might have crash-landed back in 1991, it's become a fan favourite ever since.

It was well-received by critics but only scraped together $46 million at the US box office. And this was with a Pizza Hut tie-in.

But rumours are spreading about a potential remake. The 1930s-set adventure has reportedly been dusted off by executives at Disney and they are currently accepting pitches from writers on how they see the project developing.

The original film focused on a jetpack that allowed a stunt pilot to fight crime in the skies. It starred Billy Campbell, Jennifer Connelly and Timothy Dalton and was pretty damn great. Oh and it had one of the coolest movie posters ever.

What do you think about the remake?
