Return of the Rocketeer ?

I'm a big fan - and i'm not alone - of the 1991 Rocketeer movie, which was directed by Joe Johnston. The movie was not totally perfect but i loved the retro look of the movie, the Rocketeer costume and, let's say it, Jennifer Connelly who was not at that time as good actress as she is now but who was physically gorgeous. Anyone who've seen the movie will know what i'm talking about.

Now, the good news is that the Rocketeer who in the meantime became a cult movie might return in a near future as apparently a reboot is in the works and Disney is currently seeking writers for the project. Nothing is totally sure yet as they have to find a real good story but whatever the storyline will be a good idea would be to ask Joe Johnston again to be the director. If you've seen Captain America you know how good he can be to recreate the old 1930-40's era, which would be perfect for a new Rocketeer movie!

That is excellent news! Let's hope that they really make this movie.
