Re: Farscape sequel movie in the works!?

Wikipedia:

At the Burbank 2007 Farscape Convention in November 2007, Rockne S. O'Bannon stated that the webisodes would likely be released in 2008. Farscape star Ben Browder told SCI FI Wire that he looked forward to reprising the role of astronaut John Crichton in the webisodes. The 2008 writers' strike put a damper on the plans, and Browder said that it was too early to figure out to what extent he would be involved. Browder said that he had a brief discussion with Henson about the Web series at last year's Comic-Con International in San Diego:
“ They haven't come to me with any specifics yet, and I don't read anything into that. But at Comic-Con, Brian discussed it and said, 'Yeah, we're still figuring it out.' The writers' strike happened immediately after that, … and a lot of things went on hold, and it will take a little while before a number of things get going again.[18]

Re: Farscape sequel movie in the works!?

Unless I've misread, all that article says *in passing* is that a writer is working on a script for a Farscape movie. That's not exactly what I'd call a "movie in the works". For all we know it's something he's just going to try and pitch at a studio, nothing more.

Don't believe it and also don't see the point, Farscape story is over and it was a dam good one.

It's a big universe. John Crichton's Wormhole story might be over, but there are plenty of stories to be told.

I'd love to see a continuation and hope something comes of this. Farscape will always hold a very special place in my heart. As far as televised science fiction goes, I have never seen its equal.

There were quite a few storylines from the series that never saw completion, too.

Indeed.

Honestly, I feel the Nebari virus story would be a perfect one to pick up 20 years later.

Rockne tweeted this: #FarscapeMovie We've always said a movie is a passion of ours. Justin's script is just an exploratory step. But we want what you want!!

Re: Farscape sequel movie in the works!?

I like Justin Monjo's stuff overall on the show. One of the top 3 writers. In fact only Taking the Stone is outright dreadful, with the What Was Lost two parter being more of a mess than, bad.

But, for me, the heart of the show was always David Kemper. If he's not on board, then my enthusiasm is dampened somewhat. From everything I've read and seen, it was him who drove the show to be bigger, be bolder, and feel more emotionally real than most people could have hoped for. It meant, at times, that they failed spectacularly, but his constant push for real emotion and honest-to-gods galactic stakes, made the show so dear to me.

Still, can't rule out Monjo having learnt at the masters feet, so this is a fun idea to frolic with on a wet February day.

And how come people aren't also excited about the fact that the same article (I read, anyways) stating that Monjo is in the midst of developing a SF/F show for HBO, The Beasts of Valhalla with Tyrion bloody Lannister named as a star.... based on George C Chesbro's SFF/detective fiction.

Double whammy of WTF!!


Hugo - What is it with Peacekeepers. First they hunt us, then they want to move in. Are we a bed and breakfast. Do we have a sign outside that says "Free HBO?"

Re: Farscape sequel movie in the works!?

My problem with a continuation is that we wouldn't have any pop culture references beyond 1999. His son wouldn't know (or at least understand) his father's references. And I don't think the writers would have a 2010's-era astronaut find their way into the UT.

That being said, I'd love to see something back on Earth and see how humanity has changed since John returned and proved humanity was not alone in the universe. Also, the Nebari storyline definitely needs to be played out.

The link isn't working now, but I thought it said that this hypothetical movie was about John and Aeryn's son growing up on Earth and not knowing about aliens?
