Someone's Doing a Buck Rogers Movie Now

And that "someone" is the same "someone" who's credited as the director of Mortal Kombat and Alien vs. Predator!

Tell us more, Variety:

Buck Rogers is taking flight again, this time with Paul W.S. Anderson directing from a script by "Iron Man" co-writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway.

Buck Rogers, about a fighter pilot who awakens in the 25th century, is credited with helping turn outer space into a setting for exploration and action-adventure stories, and getting the public used to space-age technologies during the Space Race.

Details of the plot are being kept under wraps, but it will essentially revolve around a relatable present-day hero flung into the future.

Man, with this and fellow old-time pulp classics like Green Hornet and Doc Savage getting big screen re-imaginings in the near future, Hollywood would really be ruining some childhood memories if anyone who had these things as childhood memories hadn't already lost those remembrances to Alzheimer's, dementia, general aging or death. So I guess it's fine.
