Re: Farscape sequel movie in the works!?

Didn't the miniseries cost 26 million dollars 10 years ago? I don't remember where I saw that number i thought I did. Is there anyway that a Farscape movie could make it's money back?

Hell they couldn't even get the web series made.

I Googled "Farscape Peacekeeper Wars Budget" and didn't find anything, so I checked the Wikipedia Page, and nothing there either.

26 Million seems way out of line for SyFy Channel for a 4 hour time slot, to tie up a Series they cancelled for low ratings.

I agree the 26 million seems like way too large a number. That being said, SyFy did not produce the movie. If I remember correctly they were able to get independent financial support to get the movie made, and then SyFy aired it.

Sure, but, if, it cost $26M to make, that would translate into a rather large ticket price for SyFy (And anyone else Internationally) to air it, no? The folks who paid to make it, weren't just doing Fans a favor by paying for it, they did it to make money, and even at $20 a DVD, that still comes up way short of the $26M Investment

If the story has a point, and it's a well written story, I'm all for any new Farscape.

Has D'argo ever come back from the dead in the comics and would the comics be considered canon if a film happens?

I believe as far as Rockne O'Bannon is concerned, the comics are "canon," as much as Farscape has canon. I can't remember where I read that; either in an online article, an introduction to the trade paperbacks, or something Keith R. A. DeCandido said on this board or somewhere else.

Or I might be completely full of shit.
No, D'Argo never came back as far as I know.
The story on IGN reporting O'Bannon's quote said the comics would be canon. They also shared a synopsis from when news of the movie first came out.
Set to follow the awesome comics written by our favorite Keith R.A. DeCandido, the film would follow John and Aeryn’s son, D’Argo (or Little D, as we will always refer to him). Because their baby was exhibiting a set of interesting powers that made him a magnet for galactic villains, we find that John and Aeryn hide their son on Earth to grow up. Now the kid is 19 and ready to go into space with his parents.
Sounds to me like it could be fun, although I'm always a little iffy on the whole magic space baby aspect. I haven't read the comics yet (I will once I finish my current rewatch), so I'm not sure what kind of "powers" he had, if that even comes from the comics.

Having not read the comics, how do they even get back to Earth?

Re: Farscape sequel movie in the works!?

I have no idea. Everything I know comes from the Farscape wiki, and that only goes up to the second or third miniseries before the ongoing for most of the characters and stuff. There are a few things from later, like I did read about where John and Aryn end up by the time the big arc that closed out the comics started. None of that ever mentioned Earth, so that might have happened either during the last arc or between it and the movie.

Re: Farscape sequel movie in the works!?

I was watching a just released interview with the creative supervisor of Jim Henson's Creature Shop. About mid-way through the interview, the supervisor demoed a 3D version of Rigel that was designed to be controlled by a hand puppeteer. I guess this is more confirmation that another Farscape movie is indeed in the works?

Re: Farscape sequel movie in the works!?

Interesting. I know that is one of their new things they're doing now. I hope it's for a new Farscape production, but there is a chance it could just be something they just did for a demo. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

If it's not a demo, I hope it's another Hynerian. I wouldn't want to see Rygel XVI recast.

Re: Farscape sequel movie in the works!?

I didn't know Johnathan Hardy died. I don't know if I could imagine anybody else voicing Rygel. But then again, people probably said the same about Kermit and Steve Whitemire's been doing a good job for the last 25 years.

Plus what's his name forgot how to voice Pilot for the miniseries so we can live.

Not that I think we will ever see a live action continuation anyways.

As I recall, that wasn't Lani Tupu's fault. It was something to do with the sound editor.

That's what I've heard, too. They couldn't remember how to mix Pilot's voice.
