Deadline reports that Paramount Television is developing the film Galaxy Quest for a television revival. One of the film’s original writers Robert Gordon, who will likely pen the pilot script, is set to executive produce the series along with the original director Dean Parisot and producer Mark Johnson.
It’s unclear at this point whether the television series will be a sequel to the series or a reboot, but check back here for further details as we learn them. Talk of a sequel to the film has been discussed previously though nothing has previously materialized. A comic book sequel titled Galaxy Quest: Global Warning debuted in 2009 and an ongoing series titled Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues is currently being published.
Released in 1999, Galaxy Quest was conceived as a parody not only of the original “Star Trek” series but of the cult following that series has amassed over the years. The film centered on the cast of an old sci-fi television series recruited by a race of aliens believing them to be the characters they played on the series. The film starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, and Daryl Mitchell.
