‘The Last Starfighter’ Could Be Coming To Television As ‘The Starfighter Chronicles’
BAADASSSSS!   |  

The Last Starfighter

Released over three decades ago to this day, the sci-fi cult classic The Last Starfighter was a groundbreaking achievement in cinematic special effects as one of the earliest feature films to employ computer-generated imagery. Now the film’s screenwriter Jonathan Betuel wants to revive his creation as a television series, and it will have an intriguing hook that no other program has: virtual reality.

Betuel is teaming up with Andy Vick and Rick Rey, the co-founders of the virtual reality entertainment company Surreal, for the new series which will be titled The Starfigher Chronicles. The show won’t continue the story of the film, which focused on a teenager whose dreams of leaving home for a better life and his skills at an arcade video game get him embroiled in an intergalactic war. Instead, Chronicles will be “a serialized story about alien law enforcement,” according to Variety’s Janko Roettgers.
