We knew Paramount was looking for a movie-to-series adaptation of Galaxy Quest a few months ago and was shopping it around…now EW reports that the project has landed at Amazon Studios, where it will undergo further development.
Beyond that, little is known, other than the production crew will look the same. Co-writer Robert Gordon, director Dean Parisot and executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are all back and will do the same for the pilot, with the Gordon and Parisot also exec producing.
It’s still a long ways off…but never give up…never surrender…
Paramount has been digging deep in the archives looking for properties that it might be able to turn into TV shows (can’t we get some original ideas guys?), and it appears they may have found a nugget in the form of Galaxy Quest, the 1999 DreamWorks spoof about the stars of a long-canceled SF TV show being taken by aliens to help them against a malevolent enemy.
Nellie Andreeva at Deadline reports that Paramount is developing Galaxy Quest for the small screen, with original feature writer Robert Gordon, director Dean Parisot and producer Mark Johnson all on board to executive produce, with Gordon also expected to write the pilot.
Actor Robin Sachs, who has played many different roles across the board, often in prosthetic makeup, passed away last week at the age of 61.
Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer might recognize his face as that of Ethan Rayne, but he did a lot of voice work (most recently in the game Mass Effect 3) and acted frequently in prosthetic makeup, including the role of Sarris in the Tim Allen comedy Galaxy Quest, four different roles in Babylon 5 (two Narn and new Minbari), and General Valen in (Star Trek: Voyager).
