Buck Rogers TV reboot from George Clooney and Brian K. Vaughn hit with a cease-and-desist letter

  • "A growing dust-up over classic outer space hero Buck Rogers isn’t a fight over rights, and it won’t be warming up to become one if Legendary Entertainment has anything to say about it," reports Deadline's Anthony D'Alessandro and Dominic Patten. "The Buck Rogers estate, overseen by the Nowlan Family Trust, on Tuesday fired off a cease-and-desist letter to Legendary about its recent announcement that it was developing a TV reboot of the popular sci-fi property. George Clooney and his Smokehouse partner Grant Heslov are set to executive produce Legendary’s Buck Rogers project with a script by Brian K. Vaughn and Angry Films’ Don Murphy and Susan Montford also producing. In the brief-ish letter sent by email and snail mail to Michael Ross, Legendary Entertainment’s EVP Business Affairs, the estate contends that 'the Buck Rogers interests' have already penned an agreement with David Ellison’s Skydance Productions to exploit the property."
