It's obviously very important what I think and this is what it is; tell the story to its conclusion no matter what it is, don't plan for sequals. If this does ok then it opens the door for other 2000ad properties rather than a sequal.

Voice is changed, but the words aren't.

Just rewatched Moon again.   Fair play that's a good film and Jones seems to be a big fan of a lot of 60s and 70s sci fi especially British so hopefully it's in good hands.

Sorry if this is a necrosis but I haven't read all the thread due to a low phone battery, but it would be nice to have an appearance by Rafella Blue. Also, I liked the slightly grittier Rogue shown in the Realpolitik graphic novel.

Surely we don’t need any MORE comparisons with The Raid?!!
Ah, hell... it’s Duncan Jones, I’ve got total faith in him.
Never ever bloody anything ever

Irritating article, frankly. The Raid didn't influence Dredd, according to basically everyone outside of lazy film hacks. And Dredd and Rogue Trooper aren't in the same universe. (Yes, I know there was that crossover between Fr1day and Dredd, but that feels a bit more dimensional shenanigans than actual "everyone's in the same continuity".)

I didn't mind the article until I read that bit. So. Annoying!

Anyway, I have mixed feelings concerning the comparison with Guardians of the Galaxy and The Raid.

On one hand I'm not sure how it would work. I really like the Guardians... films and for all the darkness of the Rogue.... strip there is some humour to be had with Rogues biochips, etc. It could work.

I haven't seen The Raid, but I understand it generally went down well. I hope it doesn't involve Rogue stuck in a big building, fighting his way through to save budget, but I guess the budget could be also shaved setting it largely in a quarry environment too...

Reservedly hopeful.

Neither of those film comparisons are ones I would necessarily welcome in connection with Rogue Trooper, but I guess the Guardians part probably means some smart-mouthed biochips. Ah, what the heck, as I've said before, the guy likes Cinnabar, right? That buys plenty of credibility - let's see what he comes up with.

Also, whatever else you might think about the guy, he wrote and directed Moon, which was bloody excellent classic SF. There's no reason to think this won't be good.

WoW and Mute would like a word. Nonetheless, I'm rooting for him and Rogue.

Perhaps I should rephrase: there's no reason to automatically assume this will be bad.

He's working hard on his script and seems pleased by what he's prepared so far, so that has to be good news. Perhaps my vision of Saving Private Ryan in Space meets Full Metal Jacket is for another day! :) Sounds more Action orientated than a searing commentary on humanities aggressive nature.
