I really enjoyed the 1991 Disney film, The Rocketeer.  It is a fun pulp movie with a bit of Steam Punk feel.  It is heroic and has a ton of action.  It is set in the 1930s where a stunt pilot stumbles upon the Rocketeer’s jet pack outfit.

Disney is creating a sorta sequel and sorta reboot of this movie. It will have a modern day twist to the story.  The Rocketeers is the current title of the movie.  It will have an African-American female lead.

The Rocketeers is in early stages of development.  Check out the description below.

The new take keeps the story in a period setting and offers a fresh view on the characters. Set six years after the original Rocketeer and after Secord has vanished while fighting the Nazis, an unlikely new hero emerges: a young African–American female pilot, who takes up the mantle of Rocketeer in an attempt to stop an ambitious and corrupt rocket scientist from stealing jet-pack technology in what could prove to be a turning point in the Cold War.  (THR)

I love this concept.  It sounds like a blast.  I am eagerly anticipating watching this movie.
