I had to make sure of what the date was before I posted this. Back on April 1, it was reported the Netflix was getting new episodes of Firefly; I got punked for a bit. Now, the reports for a Farscape movie was months ago which I kept in the back of my head as to not to get too excited over the prospects. Reading this morning news, I could not be pleased by the news and the process of a new Farscape movie is in the works. However, after reading the article below, I was kinda dumbstruck by the “premise” of this new film. I will be talking about this in the next podcast and would like to hear your thoughts on this matter. Are you happy with a new Farscape movie? Do you wish for another Farscape series? Or should Farscape receive a rebooted treatment? Let me know on this blog and your comments might show up on the podcast.
Back in February we brought you news that a Farscape movie was supposedly in the works. Now Rockne O’Bannon, creator and showrunner of the original series, has confirmed that the movie is, in fact, happening.
Confirmation comes by way of TV.com:
Just a little bit of, maybe interesting, information to report. ;-p Texting me from WonderCon, a very good friend of mine (@PaulBurrows) just left the Showrunners Panel at [WonderCon]. A panel member, non other than Rockne O’Bannon, the co-creator ofWarehouse 13, Defiance, and Revolution… who was also Farscape’s creator and showrunner – has indeed CONFIRMED a Farscape movie is happening.
