They really want this to work.

If they have zombies, vampires, or a dystopia I'm out.

Re: Lost in space TV show at Legendary

Of that pilot from a little over a decade ago which I've seen a good bit of, I wonder why John Woo signed on to do the project? Wish fulfillment from early adulthood? Fallow creative period? Money problems? Anyone, please chime in with possible answers.

Re: Lost in space TV show at Legendary

Was at a Comic-Con a few years back, and got into a conversation with "Greg", about Lost in Space. He said he was part of the "early creative team" for the Woo LiS project. As I remember the conversation, it would seem to me that Wo was in the arena of "wish fulfillment from early adulthood" as mentioned by Drone above. Who knows, but I did buy my "Jupiter 2" there. if you look at Woo's early influences and preferences, you could argue he did prefer older versions of certain genre, and was influenced by them. Just my 2 cents.

Re: Lost in space TV show at Legendary

That pilot from a few years ago was awful beyond belief. The movie had its moments, but they were buried in a sludge of blandness and stupidity. I don't expect much from attempt number three, but I'll cross my fingers.

Legengary TV is the television production arm of Legendary Pictures. Not a cable channel.

Re: Lost in space TV show at Legendary

Yeah I remember liking the movie at the time, but watching it again recently the only things that really seem to work are Oldman's Dr Smith and the awesome robot.

I know there are people out there could probably make a really fun and exciting LiS TV series that took proper advantage of the great premise... but I seriously doubt it's going to be these people who wrote.... Dracula Untold. Ugh.

"Space Family Robinson" is certainly a workable premise. It's never been well-executed (even in the '60s), but the potential is there.

Agree. This title would be perfect.

I'd like to see it be a bright adventure show. The LiS movie wouldn't be a bad model for visuals or something like the YA movies we've been getting like Hunger Games or Divergent. But not as stupid/silly as the original show would get but without going into grimdark territory or becoming so arc-bound you can't miss an episode or two without being lost.

If they do anywhere near as good a job with this show as they did with Dracula Untold, I'll be watching it.

The amount of care and attention that went into the movie for both the real Vlad and character of Dracula, while telling a prequel, that is also the setup for a series of movies, in an hour and a half while still keeping a solid story of it's own was amazing.

Legendary is a production company.
