While visiting the set of The Crazies, Arrow in the Head reporter Eric Walkuski asked director Breck Eisner what the latest was on the long-in-development Flash Gordon movie:

"We broke story with the writers [Matt] Sazama and [Burk] Sharpless for the last five or six months or so," answered Eisner. "They went to draft just as we started shooting, and they're going to get to me a draft at wrap. I'll read it and do notes and we'll do a polish on that and give it to the studio a couple months from now. Hopefully the studio will like it and we'll go forward. It's a big movie and the studio has got to love the script.

"The thing about Flash is, you've got to throw away the 80s version of it," Eisner went on to say. "I want it to be intense, aggressive, gritty and real. For me it's about reinventing Flash - we're still staying true to the adventure origins of it, and the adventurous spirit in that movie, absolutely. It's this man brought to another planet and uniting the disperate groups on Mongo, but there is a gritty, intense, dynamic, active quality to the movie. Very modern. It's not camp."
