Last Tuesday a new IMDB page appeared for a Wing Commander film reboot slated for 2015. Fans have been understandably surprised and curious about this new development!
The project description sounds similar to that of the original movie with the added addition of the 'reboot' aspect that's popular today. "The film follows the TCS Tiger's Claw and the crew as fight a war for survival against a vicious alien race known as the Kilrathi. Reboot of the Wing Commander franchise." Several cast members have also been listed: Robert Rusler (Seether from WC4) as Colonel Halcyon, Asim Ahmad as Grunt from the Academy TV show, Scarlett Laurent as Angel and Jay Montalvo as the voice of Prince Thrakhath. The actors above also happen to be listed as producers of the project, and this would be Ahmad's first writing credit. Its budget is listed as a $32 million estimate. Chris Roberts and Electronic Arts are also named, but formal agreements haven't been established yet.
As the project is in pre-production, the details above would still need to be refined for the venture to move forward. And just to clarify, this is not the same director's cut of the 1999 film that Chris Roberts occasionally mentions as a potential future possibility. Many of the details remain fluid, so we look forward to clarifying more in the near future!
Wing Commander Enters the Retro Zone
Pix recently came across a pretty neat article in the UK magazine PC Zone. I really like it's graphical layout with the Dralthis overflying the slick text. The author is a big fan of the WC series and uses it as an example for awesome '90s games that were outside the realm of his usual fare. (2019-02-19)
