22 April 2015 8:14 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

An in-the-works Galaxy Quest TV series, the Blu-ray of 1981's Wolfen, and details on Daredevil’s sophomore season are all featured in our latest round-up.

Galaxy Quest TV Series: Variety reports that Paramount Television is looking to do a TV series take on the 1999 sci-fi-comedy, Galaxy Quest, which starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman. Robert Gordon, the co-writer of the feature film that poked fun at sci-fi conventions, such as the high fatalities of redshirts on Star Trek, is in talks to be involved in the TV version, along with the 1999 film's director, Dean Parisot, and its executive producers, Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates.

Synopsis of the Galaxy Quest film (via Blu-ray.com): "They're not astronauts... they only played them on TV. For four seasons, from 1979 to 1982, the crew of the N.S.E.A. Protector donned their uniforms »

Galaxy Quest TV spin-off in the works

22 April 2015 2:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Reports are circulating that a Galaxy Quest spin-off is being put together at Paramount, with the makers involved...

"By Grabthar's hammer, by the Suns of Worvan, you shall be avenged!"

1999's Galaxy Quest was a genuinely funny and fond spoof of classic sci-fi TV, with great leading turns from Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen and, of course, Alan Rickman as the embittered Alexander Dane, a thespian who's grown to resent his fame as the alien, Dr Lazarus.

While our wish for a movie sequel never came true, news has broken that Paramount is looking to make a TV spin-off. Variety is reporting that Galaxy Quest co-writer Robert Gordon is in negotiations to make the show, with the involvement of original director Dean Parisot.

Galaxy Quest is, of course, one of a whole wave of film properties being dusted down for a TV spin-off. It has to be said, however, that Galaxy Quest »

Reel TV: 'Galaxy Quest' To Get a TV Show Instead of a Sequel

21 April 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

According to Galaxy Quest star Tim Allen, there is indeed a script written for a sequel, but as of today the only way to get more time with the crew of the Nsea Protector is to either rewatch the fantastic original film on a loop or to read the comic book series Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues. But, in a great twist of fate, the movie about the cast of a sci-fi TV show who end up getting abducted by aliens is now gearing up to become an actual TV show. According to Variety, Paramount Television has begun the process of putting together the show, which would reunite the original's core creative team of Robert Gordon (screenwriter), Dean Parisot (director), and Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein (executive producers). And if there's a show in the works, it's safe to...

'Galaxy Quest' Is Heading To TV

21 April 2015 5:10 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

All of you liked Galaxy Quest, right? Of course you did. Who wouldn't like a film that managed to sendup and pay homage to our favorite sci-if series Star Trek?

At any rate, if you enjoyed the flick, then you may like the news I have for you today.

Hollywood trade brings word that Paramount has decided to move forward with a television series based on the film.

Quest's original writer, Robert Gordon, will pen the script as well as executive produce the new show with Dean Parisot, who directed the original film, and Mark Johnson, who produced it.

Galaxy Quest starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam RockwellDaryl Mitchell and Enrico Colantoni. As much fun as it would be to see the band get back together, I imagine there will be an entirely new cast.

What do you think of this? »

Paramount planning Galaxy Quest TV adaptation

21 April 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There may not be any immediate plans to bring Star Trek back to television in the near future, but we’ve now learned that Paramount is looking to get into the sci-fi TV game with a small screen adaptation of Galaxy Quest

The 1999 film starring Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman famously satirized Trek and became a cult classic (and is, arguably, one of the best Star Trek films ever made). Fans have been hoping for a sequel for quite some time now, and while a direct continuation of the story is destined to play out on comic book pages instead of on screen, the concept itself is ripe for a television adaptation, if handled correctly. So, by Grabthar’s hammer, we just may be in for a treat.

The film’s scribe, Robert Gordon, is expected to pen the TV version and serve as executive producer alongside original »

Galaxy Quest television series in development

21 April 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A television adaptation of Galaxy Quest is reportedly in the works.

The cult classic science fiction comedy's co-writer Robert Gordon and Dean Parisot are currently working with Paramount on a television spinoff, according to Variety.

Galaxy Quest starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman as feuding actors on a popular science fiction show reunited by actual aliens.

The aliens turn to these Hollywood stars for their help in an intergalactic crisis, believing that their television show was real.

Paramount has declined to comment on reports of a Galaxy Quest television adaptation.

Galaxy Quest's stature has grown among sci-fi fans since its release in 1999, with talk of a sequel even emerging a decade ago.

Even Galaxy Quest Is Getting Rebooted Now

21 April 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

By Grabthar's hammer, Galaxy Quest is the next '90s cult classic to get the reboot treatment. According to Deadline, Paramount is trying to revive the 1999 sci-fi parody as a TV series, with director Dean Parisot and writer Robert Gordon attached as producers. It's great news for the film's legions of fans, who last month launched an online petition to get the original film's stars to reunite for a Galaxy Quest convention, where they will undoubtedly be kidnapped by aliens who think they're actually out-of-work television actors. »

Galaxy Quest TV Series Enters Development

21 April 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Another cult classic movie earmarked for the small screen treatment has now set up shop at Paramount. The 1999 space comedy Galaxy Quest has been the subject of endless fan queries concerning a sequel, and in a roundabout way, the studio listened. According to Deadline, the network has started development on a TV series which may be a sequel, spinoff Or remake. While specifics on the deal are unreported, the trade does make mention of key members of the film’s original creative team set to return.

Writer Robert Gordon, director Dean Parisot, and producer Mark Johnson are expected to be involved in this new iteration. Whether it remakes the same story or ventures into hitherto unexplored realms of the galaxy, the enlistment of that core trio imparts a certain assuredness, as the first movie was a total knock-out.

For those unfamiliar, the original Dreamworks feature followed the comical antics of »

Cult Fave 'Galaxy Quest' Getting TV Series Reboot

21 April 2015 1:39 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Before "Guardians Of The Galaxy," there were plenty of other movies that did the wild, wacky, space adventure thing (we ran down twenty-six of them), but few are as beloved as "Galaxy Quest." The 1999 sci-fi film has a killer cast that includes Tim AllenAlan RickmanSigourney Weaver, and Sam Rockwell and became a cult favorite, and fans have been hoping for a sequel. Well, that's not gonna happen, but this might be the next best thing. Variety reports that Paramount is turning the wheels on a television series version of the "Galaxy Quest." The key creatives from the movie — co-writer Robert Gordon, director Dean Parisot, and executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein — are all board to work on this new take. The same premise will be used, following the cast of a cancelled '70s sci-fi show who find themselves in a real deal space adventure, and it's »

Galaxy Quest TV Show in the Works

21 April 2015 1:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Good news, everyone! Well, maybe. Paramount Television is in the process of putting together a Galaxy Quest TV based on the fantastic 1999 sci-fi comedy of the same name. At once a brilliant riff on Star Trek and also one of the best Star Trek movies ever made, Dean Parisot’s film revolved around the aging stars of a once-popular sci-fi TV series called Galaxy Quest who, after attending yet another sci-fi convention, are beamed up into space by a group of aliens that think the TV series was a collection of “historical documents.” Per Deadline, Parisot, Galaxy Quest producer Mark Johnson, and Galaxy Quest screenwriter Robert Gordon are executive producing the potential series, with Gordon penning the script. That’s a swell vote of confidence for what could be either a fantastic idea or a terrible one, and it's the next in a line of film-to-tv adaptations that Paramount is working on, »

Galaxy Quest TV Series Under Construction

21 April 2015 1:03 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Paramount has been eagerly raiding the film archive for titles to turn into TV series, and it has its next target on the radar. 1999’s Galaxy Quest is now in development for the small screen.The movie, in case you’ve never seen it, took a satirical look at the casts of Star Trek in particular, following the misadventures of a group of actors still dealing with being typecast as their characters on the sci-fi series Galaxy Quest. Preening leading man Jason Nesmith (Tim Allen), who played Captain Peter Quincey Taggart, has long since annoyed the rest of his former colleagues to breaking point with his slack attitude. But then they’re contacted by a group of aliens they mistake to be super fans, who need their help with a nasty tyrant creature. The result? the group is suddenly flung into a very real situation in space. Director Dean Parisot »

‘Galaxy Quest’ TV Series in the Works

21 April 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paramount Television is shopping a TV spin on the 1999 comedy “Galaxy Quest,” a spoof of the sci-fi TV show that starred Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver.

Robert Gordon, who co-wrote the DreamWorks feature with David Howard, is in negotiations to work on the TV adaptation, as are original director Dean Parisot and executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. The movie’s conceit — revolving around the cast of a beloved 1970s sci-fi TV series who are inadvertently reunited for a real space trek to help an alien race — seems tailor-made for a series rendition.

In the years since “Quest” was released, Parisot has become a busy television helmer, while Johnson and Bernstein have scaled the heights with “Breaking Bad,” “Rectify” and “Better Call Saul,” among other shows.

"Galaxy Quest" To Become A TV Series

21 April 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount Television is developing a TV series based on DreamWorks' 1999 sci-fi/comedy satire "Galaxy Quest".

The original film centered on the cast of a canceled "Star Trek"-like space opera TV show who are accidentally sent to a real spaceship and must save an alien nation. Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell and Enrico Colantoni starred.

The film's scribe Robert Gordon is expected to write the TV version and executive produce with director Dean Parisot, and producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein.

Various attempts have been made to blend comedy and sci-fi on the small screen before, most notably the early 1990s British sitcom "Red Dwarf" and the beloved long-running animated series "Futurama".

'Bill & Ted' Almost Had a Time Traveling Van and a Dog

3 April 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last we heard, Bill & Ted 3 was happening soon or not at all according to star Alex Winter. The actor-turned-director is still promoting his latest documentary Deep Web, which actually reunites him with his Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure co-star Keanu Reeves, who provided the narration. While we don't exactly have another update on Bill & Ted 3, Alex Winter did share some interesting early notes on the original movie.

These pages come from Ed Solomon, who wrote both Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey with Chris Matheson. They are also penning Bill & Ted 3. Here, we get to see some of the early ideas the duo had for their iconic time traveling teenagers. While the basic idea remains intact, there were a few important changes made. First off, the title was Bill and Ted's Time Van. They were still a couple of losers in a band called Wyld Stallyns, »

'Bill & Ted 3' Will Happen Soon or Never Says Alex Winter

16 March 2015 3:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that actor Keanu Reeves is providing the narration for his longtime friend Alex Winter's new documentary Deep Web, which debuted at the South by Southwest Film Festival this past weekend. Both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, who starred in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, appeared at SXSW yesterday, where Alex Winter gave an update on their long-awaited sequel Bill & Ted 3. The project has been in development for several years, and although now it is closer than ever to happening, Alex Winter revealed to Yahoo! Movies that if production doesn't start soon, the sequel may never happen. Here's what he had to say below.

"We're really close. We're just about there. In Hollywood parlance, [that] means we'll either be shooting soon, or it's never going to happen."

Although Alex Winter retired from acting in 1993 to focus on documentary filmmaking, he will »

How much does Boyd suspect her? Does he love her so much that he could overlook a betrayal? Think about their relationship and how much they’ve confided in each other.

Justified Recap: I’m Not Following You

28 January 2015 8:43 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The sixth season of Justified keeps humming along with "Cash Game." Written by Dave Andron and VJ Boyd, and directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest), the episode's crisp storytelling is reminiscent of the show's superior, even-numbered seasons, which laid out a series of parallel-seeming subplots that converged with wit and grace. Here we saw Boyd's bank robbery, Ava's informing on Boyd, the machinations of the big-bearded real-estate fixer Ty Walker, all converging. As was the case last week, we got the sense of an endgame in progress, not just for all the main characters' stories, but for Harlan County as established in the previous five seasons. Everything is changing; an old way of life is passing away. The obsession with land, ancestry, and old grudges always simmered in the background, but now it's in the foreground.The key scene might've been that conversation between Boyd and Raylan near the end »
