Never give up, never surrender!
The Galaxy Quest series based on the 1999 movie has been in development for a while at Paramount, with Amazon signing on for distribution, but plans took a hit when Alan Rickman, who played Alexander Dane/Dr. Lazarus in the movie, passed away in January of 2016.
Now it seems things are picking up again, with the series still set for Amazon, with The League star and occasional writer Paul Scheer working on a script based on a new take for the series. No word on whether this version will feature any of the original cast. Mark Johnson is still attached as a producer.
Rumor no more…Disney/Lucasfilm is developing an Obi-Wan-centric movie to be the third Anthology film in the Star Wars franchise.
And this is EARLY in development. There is no deal currently in place with anyone, but we understand that Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Reader) is being eyed.
So now the next movie rumor can be put to rest, and now we can speculate on who will play him…
