Odd Lot in talks to option the rights for the project

Frank Miller and Odd Lot Entertainment, the creator and production company behind the upcoming comic-book adventure “The Spirit,” are close to teaming again on the classic sci-fi property “Buck Rogers.”

Odd Lot, the shingle run by Gigi Pritzker and Deborah Del Prete, is in negotiations to option the rights to “Rogers” from Nu Image/Millennium, which obtained those rights this year from the Dille Trust. Millennium is expected to get a credit on the movie but won’t be involved in day-to-day production.

John Flint Dille, a friend of Miller’s, operates the trust, which may have partly prompted rumors at the time of the Millennium acquisition that the comic auteur-turned-filmmaker might come aboard to direct. But Miller was not attached at the time; he only became involved when Odd Lot entered the picture.

Miller will write and direct his own big-screen take on the comic serial; while the creator has only begun to sketch ideas, it’s expected to be a darker take, with many of Miller’s signature visual elements and themes, such as corruption and redemption.

It’s likely to be a priority project for Miller, though he has been mulling a “Sin City” sequel.
