Kevin Smith's sci-fi comic book film?

KevinSmith.jpgKevin Smith appears to be mulling over the idea of making a science fiction comic book film in the same vein as Flash Gordon.

However there is a big caveat, if his next two films don't do well he thinks he won't get to make it.

Although I'm not a fan of all Kevin Smith's films, I really do like Clerks II (Filmstalker review), and it hit me like a ton of bricks, I had no idea I was going to like it and was actually preparing for not enjoying it.

One of the things I really did enjoy was the dialogue, it was real and fresh as well as being damned funny, and I've often wondered how he could turn his pen to other areas.

Well it looks like we're set to see when he delivers Red State, his thriller/horror type film, and if that and Zack and Miri Make A Porno are successful enough we'll get to see...

"Ranger Danger and the Danger Rangers"

I do think that sounds like a provisional title from the story in Digital Spy, or rather I hope it does, but he promises it'll be in the same vein as Flash Gordon, if it ever gets off the ground.

"[It depends] on what happens with the next two [films]. They might try to stick me in movie jail. But I've [messed] up way worse in the past."

What do you think, Kevin Smith does science fiction, and comic book perhaps campy science fiction too?
