Remember Backaroo Banzai? yeah that one..with Peter Weller.
At the end of the credits we were promised a Sequel and now nearly 30 years later the director of the original flick is still giving us hope.
In an interview with moviefone director W.D. Richter –
I believe MGM owns the theatrical rights. The other big insanity for ‘Buckaroo’ is that the paper trail for the rights is almost impossible to follow. Warner Bros. wants to do an adult animated version of ‘Buckaroo.’ PolyGram sold it to MGM as a big bundle — all these films move around. And then, finally, you’re sitting at a studio that you found out purchased part of someone’s library and they are reluctant to do anything with the title because they don’t know for a fact that David Begleman, who was a notorious double dealer, might not have sold the international rights in perpetuity to some guy in Bangkok.
