Did I miss an announcement? Outer Limits, which had first-run episodes until recently on Showtime and also showed earlier seasons in syndication and on the Sci-Fi Channel and was cancelled as far as I knew, is apparently back in production for first-run episodes for the Sci-Fi channel and will premiere March 16th. Perhaps there was a “Babylon-esque” cancellation to get out of the Showtime contract?
I love anthology series, as they give us a chance to see stories that otherwise wouldn’t make it on the screen. I’d love to see some of Larry Niven’s Known Space stories.
Variety is reporting that Stephen Dorff (Cecil B. DeMented, Blade), Jennifer Love Hewitt (Party of Five, I Know What You Did Last Summer), and Christian Slater (The Contender, Very Bad Things) are all in talks to star in I Inside, a time-travel movie based on Michael Cooney’s (Jack Frost) upcoming play, Point of Death. The story deals with an amnesiac who discovers he can travel through time to change his own future.
George Lucas told USA Today (according to Sci-Fi Wire – I am unable to find the article) “No way” in regards to more Star Wars movies. “I guarantee that. After the next one [Episode III], I’ll move on.” He got to tell the story he wanted, and that will be it.
