There will be another film about The Phantom, a superhero in skin-tight purple suit who fights the evil off his African jungle.

Scriptwriter Tim Boyle, however, explained to The Associated Press on Tuesday, December 16 that it is not a sequel to the 1996 adaptation movie "The Phantom" that starred Billy Zane as the titular character, but rather, "a fresh look at the origins of the Phantom set in the present". In the phone interview Boyle said, "One of the things that I always questioned about the Phantom is why the Phantom legacy keeps passing down from generation to generation. To me, what would be interesting is seeing the son that didn't want to be the Phantom."
