 Phantom Rises Again

Crusader Entertainment and Hyde Park are developing a new film based on the classic The Phantom comic strip, with Olympic gold medalist-turned-feature film writer Mel Stewart penning the script, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This new film version will update the comic strip, about a purple-clad superhero who fights evil in Africa.

The Phantom was adapted for the screen previously in 1996, with Billy Zane, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kristy Swanson and Treat Williams.

Stewart won three medals as a swimmer in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.
