The TV series based on 1999 film Galaxy Quest has found a backer and a place to air – Amazon Prime has announced its support…
It’s been months since we first heard anything about the upcoming TV version of Galaxy Quest.
Back in April we were told that a TV spin-off was in the works, but then we got nothing but silence for months. Now, though, nearly half a year later, we finally have some more information to share.
The Galaxy Quest TV series has found a home at Amazon Prime, marking the latest attempt by the young streaming service to recruit a few more subscribers by supporting a familiar name. Perhaps we should assume, then, that saving Ripper Street scored Amazon some good sign-up numbers as well as that outpouring of online good will.
That Galaxy Quest television series that we all got excited about earlier this year looks to have found a home. Amazon Studios is actively developing a series based on the 1999 fan favorite (and one of the better Star Trek movies that exists), partnering with Paramount Television to make the idea into a reality. But being still very early in the process, there seems to be more questions than answers as to what... Read More »

Amazon Studios is adding some more aliens and quirky adventures to its library of original content. The digital production house has signed a development deal for a new series from Paramount Television based on Galaxy Quest, the 1999 cult sci-fi film from DreamWorks.
The Galaxy Quest film told the story of cast members from a cancelled Star Trek-like science fiction TV show, who are mistaken for real heroes and whisked away to space by simple-minded aliens to save them from a threatening race. The movie starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shaloub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell, Enrico Colantoni, and Justin Long.
So far, Entertainment Weekly, who originally broke the news of the Galaxy Quest series deal with Amazon, reports none of the original Galaxy Quest acting talent is on board with the project. Overall, the show is still in early stages, but has already signed on original Galaxy Quest »

Back in April it was revealed that Paramount Television was working on a small screen take on the cult sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest, and now Deadline is reporting that Amazon has picked up the project for development.
The TV adaptation is being penned by feature screenwriter Robert Gordon, director Dean Parisot and producer Mark Johnson, who will all executive produce. As yet, the concept is being worked out, therefore casting is yet to get underway.
Released in 1999, Galaxy Quest was a send up of the Star Trek TV series, and starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell, Enrico Colantoni and Justin Long.

Back in April, a report surfaced that original Galaxy Quest co-writer Robert Gordon is developing a new TV series based on the cult classic sci-fi comedy, which debuted in 1999. That report revealed that Paramount was shopping the project around to networks and streaming services, and now it seems the Galaxy Quest adaptation has found a home. Entertainment Weekly reports that Amazon Studios has signed on to develop the series.
The original Galaxy Quest movie centered on the cast of a cancelled sci-fi TV series, who get recruited to go on a real-life outer space mission to save a nation of aliens, who believed their characters were actually real. The ensemble cast for the sci-fi movie includes Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell, Enrico Colantoni, Missi Pyle and Justin Long, who made his feature debut on the movie. The movie earned just $90 million at the »
Galaxy Quest has built up a cult following over the years, and it will now continue in a TV series.
Amazon Studios has picked up a small-screen version of the 1999 sci-fi comedy, according to Entertainment Weekly.
If you haven't seen it, Galaxy Quest centred around the cast of a Star Trek-style TV series who suddenly find themselves having to pilot a real-life spaceship for a group of aliens who mistook their series for a genuine documentary.
It has yet to be confirmed whether any of the original cast will return or whether it might be a reboot. It's probably going to be difficult to bring back some of the big name cast, including Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell.
However, the film's co-writer Robert Gordon is back to write the script and to executive produce the pilot. Director Dean Parisot is also back, alongside producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. »
Paramount Television’s TV series take on cult sci-fi comedy feature Galaxy Quest has been set up at Amazon where it is in early stages of development. The project, originally put together in the spring, is based on the 1999 DreamWorks movie about the cast of a long cancelled space TV show who become reluctant real space heroes when they are accidentally transported to a spaceship and tasked with saving an alien nation. Like most Paramount TV series projects based on… »
A sequel to Galaxy Quest, the 1999 film comedy that satirized Star Trek and its fandom, has been in development for a while, but things have changed for Galaxy Quest in the past few months. Rather than a film sequel, producers have been working on a deal for a Galaxy Quest TV series, and now […]

The 1999 sci-fi movie starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman as actors who once appeared on a “Star Trek”-like TV series — so convincingly, in fact, that the aliens who later abduct these costars don’t know the show is fake.
The deal is also de jour, given how nostalgia is fueling so many other properties. Variety reported in April that Paramount, which produced the “Galaxy Quest” movie and has put increased energy into mining its vault for TV adaptations, had been shopping the project. Paramount is also a co-producer with 20th Century Fox TV on the Fox drama “Minority Report” and »

As we told you in April, the wonderful 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest is getting the reboot treatment. Now Entertainment Weekly reports that the show will be produced by Amazon, though no cast or crew details have been announced yet. The film depicts the has-been cast of a beloved sci-fi show that bears more than a slight resemblance to Star Trek, who are cajoled into helping a peaceful alien race (they show old episodes of the show and mistook them for documentaries) into fighting off a malevolent race bent on destroying everything, as malevolent alien races tend to do. Should the show turn out to be awful, critics already have a bunch of quips already written for them: "Did you even watch the show?" "This episode was badly written." "Whoever wrote this episode should die." »

It came out more than 15 years ago, but producers are hoping fans still want more from "Galaxy Quest," the quirky 1999 sci-fi comedy.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Amazon has just acquired a television series based on the flick -- which itself focused on the cast of a fictional sci-fi show, who are then abducted by real aliens -- and is in the early stages of adapting the movie. Much of the creative team behind the film is involved with the project, including co-writer Robert Gordon (he's penning the screenplay and executive producing the pilot), director Dean Parisot (directing and executive producing), and producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein (also producing again).
The flick starred Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Alan Rickman, Sam Rockwell, Justin Long, and Tony Shaloub, among other well-known stars, and it's not clear yet if they'll be reprising their roles (it would seem that many of them may be »

As reported back in April, Paramount Television was developing a TV series based on the aforementioned 1999 film. Now, EW.com reports, the smaller-screen Galaxy Quest has touched down at Amazon, home to such originals as the acclaimed Transparent, Bosch and Alpha House.
The Galaxy Quest movie starred Tim Allen (now on Last Man Standing), Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub and Sam Rockwell as cast members of a Star Trek-like series that has long been off the air. »
Amazon will film the pilot first and then decide if they want to proceed with further episodes. No word on who would star as the Nsea Protector crew members in this new take on the property.
Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Sam Rockwell and Alan Rickman starred in the original film which followed the cast of a "Star Trek"-style TV series who were now washed up has beens.

How many times have you already watched the Deadpool trailer that debuted last night on Conan? Well, you surely missed some aspects of this epic, blood-soaked footage. There are plenty of little Easter eggs and not so obvious nods to the Marvel comic books upon which it is based. Director Tim Miller, who makes his directorial debut with this anticipated X-Men spinoff, joined Empire magazine for a comprehensive breakdown of every main shot, and the meaning behind it. First and foremost, he seems to understand that fans weren't happy the first time the Merc with the Mouth made it to the big screen.
Since the 2009 release X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which inexplicably sewed one of Marvel's most talkative character's mouth shut, Ryan Reynolds has aggressively tried to reboot the character on the big screen. »
Back in 2012, the long-rumoured third Bill & Ted movie took a big step towards becoming a reality when it was announced that Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) had signed on to direct the returning Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves as Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan.
Since that time the project seems to have remained stationery, despite its two stars popping up every six months or so to tease the third adventure. Well, Alex Winter is at it again, offering up a few words to The Next Web and explaining that Bill & Ted 3 has the potential to be funnier than its predecessors given that its characters are now older.
“It’s exciting to come back to the characters. The fun thing about them is that they’re ageless. You play them in terms of who they are spiritually. Their mannerism and physicality are not tied to age. We played them like 9-year-old kids. »

With E4 sci-fi comedy commissions, Tripped and Aliens, and in-development Channel 4 projects, Space Ark and Graham Linehan/Adam Buxton collaboration The Cloud, in the works, a new crop of sci-fi sitcom could be making its way to UK TV.
Making funny sci-fi on a small-screen budget is tough enough without the additional pressure of having to attract viewers more traditionally down-to-earth in their sitcom tastes. Sci-fi sets and effects can be seen as prohibitively expensive by comedy commissioners (which is perhaps why the best UK sci-fi sitcoms of recent years has been on BBC Radio), and the genre’s niche status doesn’t scream mainstream hit. Over the years, one or two stand-outs have managed to straddle the sci-fi and comedy TV worlds, but plenty more have stumbled in the attempt. »
After some footage of Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool shooting thugs, cracking jokes, and doing a little dance to Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” leaked at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, fan anticipation has increased for Deadpool, which got an official release date and a supporting cast in the past year.
For those not in the know, Deadpool is a mercenary character created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld in an New Mutants issue as a villainous parody of DC Comics’ Deathstroke. (Wade Wilson, Slade Wilson, see what they did there.) Over the past two decades, Deadpool has become a fan favorite character thanks to work by writers like Joe Kelly, Gail Simone, Daniel Way, and most recently Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, who gave him a daughter and an even sadder backstory in the 2013 “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” arc. He has picked up a wide variety »
