Lea Thompson Wants to Direct New Howard the Duck Movie

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?”
