Re: Star Ship Polaris

There were plans to remake "Forbidden Planet" some years ago, and Syd Mead did some production design for it. It looked pretty cool.

You pretty much have to accept remakes for what they are, though - the film probably would have upset a lot of fans of the original, but it was being planned for a different audience in a different era.

Some of the casting discussed was - seriously - Anthony Hopkins as Morbius and Sharon Stone as Alta. Along with the filmmakers' remarks that it would be "less psychologically naive" than the original, you can get some idea where it was going.

I've always thought FP would make a good springboard for a TV series.
