A reboot for 1991’s The Rocketeer is reportedly in the works for Disney+. The sequel, The Return of The Rocketeer is to be produced by David and Jessica Oyelowo. It is possible that David Oyelowo will also be starring in the film.

The movie is being produced by Oyelowo’s Yoruba Saxon Productions. Ed Ricourt is writing the screenplay. Brigham Taylor is also producing with Yoruba Saxon. This is the first film under a first-look deal Yoruba Saxon has with Disney. The news came from Deadline.

In the original film, Cliff Secord is a stunt pilot who finds a rocket pack and suit. He soon finds himself a high-flying hero. The Rocketeer was directed by Joe Johnston and starred Billy Campbell as Secord. Jennifer Connely portrayed his aspiring actress girlfriend. Alan Arkin played Secord’s mechanic and Timothy Dalton played an Errol Flynn-esque actor who turns out to be a Nazi spy.

According to Deadline, this sequel will focus on a retired Tuskegee airman who takes up the mantle of the Rocketeer. The film is being developed by Disney’s live-action team.
