JMS on Forbidden Planet: more backstory, room for more

by on Nov.23, 2009, under Movies

JMS recently gave a group interview regarding the upcoming Warner Bros. remake of Forbidden Planet, giving some hints of what is to come. Among those things mentioned – more backstory about how we get to the point of the original movie (such as the landing of the Bellerophon), and perhaps leaving some space for the possibility of some form of sequel – possibly as a franchise. And if you’re worried about it being transformed from a cerebral (both in plot and story) film to an action flick, “There’s a little more action, but it’s still a strong character piece…You need to have that dynamic still in place to respect the original and the source material. So there’s a fair amount of talking, but there’s some really cool action pieces in it as well,” according to JMS.

    loved the original

    Sure my wife thinks it’s campy but it’s a great piece of scifi. I hope they put some nods of the creepy opening title screen sound effects. Hopefully they don’t screw up another classic.
