I’ve been longing for a Galaxy Quest sequel since 1999, I’ve checked websites frequently for updates, listened to podcast interviews with the actors but, it doesn’t look like a sequel is ever going to happen. So, I’ll take the next best thing. Amazon Studios announced yesterday, that they are developing a TV series based on the cult sci-fi comedy.
It’s unkown whether any of the original cast will reprise their roles, personally, I doubt any of them will.
For those of you out of the loop, the film focused on actors from a popular sci-fi series, whom are abducted by aliens, who want their help deafeating an enemy. The catch is, the aliens believe the show to be a historical document and not a work of fiction.
The director of the original film, Dean Parisot, is attached to the project and is set to direct the first episode.
I’m a huge fan of the movie and, it’s comic book spin-off, I’m excited to see what happens.
