According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney is working on a reboot to the 1991 film, “The Rocketeer” and it will be titled “The Rocketeers”.

The project, in the early development stages, is being looked at as a sequel-reboot and will be headlined by a black female character.

Walt Disney Studios is developing a reboot of the 1991 action adventure movie, hiring Max Winkler and Matt Spicer to pen the script, which is being titled The Rocketeers.

The project, in the early development stages, is considered a sequel-reboot and, in a modern-day twist, will be headlined by a black female character.

The new take keeps the story in a period setting and offers a fresh view on the characters. Set six years after the original Rocketeer and after Secord has vanished while fighting the Nazis, an unlikely new hero emerges: a young African–American female pilot, who takes up the mantle of Rocketeer in an attempt to stop an ambitious and corrupt rocket scientist from stealing jet-pack technology in what could prove to be a turning point in the Cold War.

So what do you think? Are you looking forward to a reboot to “The Rocketeer” or do you think one “Rocketeer” was enough?
