Lea Thompson, the Back to the Future actress who starred in the original Howard the Duck, says she’s planning to pitch a new movie version to the team at Marvel Studios.
Thompson has directed a handful of television episodes and a couple of TV movies.
In an interview with Inquistr, the topic of the ’86 film came up, and Thompson said she hoped Marvel would consider giving him a new movie:
“I love Howard the Duck, the person. I love the duck. I loved the duck in the movie; maybe I took my part too far and now I still love the duck. I wish that he had his due because I don’t think they had the technology to do Howard the Duck well. So I hope that Marvel does do another Howard the Duck, and does him proud... To tell you the actual truth, I am going to Marvel to pitch Howard the Duck, a new movie… in like three weeks. I want to direct the Howard the Duck remake [laughs]. Why not dream big, right?”
