King of the Impossible

SCI FI Channel has announced that they've green-lighted production on a Flash Gordon TV series. Production is supposed to start in Canada soon so that the show can premiere in July.

No word on casting or anything like that yet, but they do say that the show will be modernized (as opposed to being set in the '30s or something like that). That doesn't thrill me, since a large part of Flash's charm is the pulpy designs of his ships and weapons and whatnot. Another shaky part of it is that it's being produced by the Legend of Earthsea guys who angered fans with their adaptation of Ursula K. Le Guin's book. We'll see though.

I watch the Flash Gordon movie multiple times per week, since getting it for Christmas on dvd.

I don't know whether modernizing it is a good idea, but I'm interested.
