The Last Starfighter...or was he?

You know, I don't know if I want to jump up and down excitedly in my Strawberry Shortcake underpants while trying not to spill my Frankenberry cereal and giggling like a maniac or fly to Hollywood and rip the heads off of the execs who greenlighted this project and pull out their spinal cords...like a maniac.

There is a rumor that they're preparing a script for a sequel to The Last Starfighter.

This could either be the coolest thing ever (despite the lamented absences of the late Dan O'Herlihy and Robert Preston) or be the biggest load of shit to ever be deposited on my dearest childhood memories.

I can't decide which is more likely.

For those of you (hell, I wouldn't be surprised if it's all of you) who have no idea what the hell I'm talking about, here are some YouTube links to The Last Starfighter.

Yeah, it's hokey looking, and the trailer certainly doesn't help the hokeyness, but trust me, the movie is made of pure, undiluted, Colombian WIN.

And the scene where the Beta Unit Alex takes off his head still gives me the creeps.

I'm quite aware that this post actually manages to make me geekier than scientists thought would be humanly possible, but I'm hoping that I'll be able to see how this all pans out before my geekdom goes critical and collapses all matter in the universe.
