Robert Culp from The Greatest American Hero to Terry and the Pirates.
He was a fan of comic books.
At the time of his death, Culp working on several screenplays. One of those screenplays, an adaptation of the story of Terry and the Pirates, had already been accepted for filming and was scheduled to start production in Hong Kong in 2012, with Culp directing the film. Terry and the Pirates had been Culp’s favorite comic strip as a boy, and it was his long-time wish to make a film based on it.
