Rocketeers: Gender-Bender–Disney Female Reboot of 1991 Adventure

Disney is developing a new take on The Rocketeers, its 1991 action-adventure, which will be fronted by a black female.

The movie, which is being produced by Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers and Ryan Kalil of the Carolina Panthers, will take place six years after the events of the original film, when a young female pilot takes up the mantle after the original Rocketeer vanishes while fighting the Nazis.

She will go head-to-head against a corrupt rocket scientist that is trying to turn the tides of the Cold War.

It is unclear which actress will don the jet pack for the part.
