Rumour of the Day: Are Disney Thinking of Rebooting ‘Condorman’ ?

Disney may be dusting off those condor wings and bringing the bumbling hero Condorman out of retirement perhaps as an animated feature.

I have to admit I enjoyed the hell out of Condorman when I first saw it. Sure Micheal Crawford’s American accent is awful and the plot is thin, to say the least, but I could care less as a kid. It had Oliver Reed as the bad guy, Black Porsches  a laser firing Condorman car, a laser firing Condorman speed boat and let’s not forget Condorman himself who could fly….kind of. He was also a comic book writer which was pretty cool I remember thinking at the time.

According to Movie hole this is the current rumors surrounding the story.


“The idea remains the same”, a House of Mouse insider – albeit one that works in a producing capacity for animation, so hasn’t got a direct line to anyone on this particular production and has admittedly heard this all third hand – told me over Skype this morning. “Wally. A Brit again. Robert Pattinson’s name has been floated, can you see him going for it? He seems to be into more intellectual things?. Still a pompous cartoonist turned superhero type gets to assist in the deflection of a sexy young KGB agent. Emphasis would be more on action this time around though. They want to steer as far off from Johnny English territory as possible. But there’s talk of doing lots with the Condorman brand. Guessing you’ll hear more about it soon Clint” – moviehole

At the moment, until I hear a lot more, I’m filing this under the names ‘May just be a lot of noise with no substance’ and ‘Robert Pattinson…seriously?’  but I do think that a new Condorman film could work and I would love to see it animated.

For you youngsters who don’t know anything about Condorman…here’s a trailer to help you.

So what do you guys think is the world ready for more Condorman?
