Farscape Movie is Happening!?

Will Farscape Return?

Could it be true? Could we have another adventure with Moya and her crew? TV.com is reporting that Farscape will return. Ed Shrinker broke the news via WonderCon 2014.

Just a little bit of, maybe interesting, information to report. ;-p Texting me from WonderCon, a very good friend of mine (@PaulBurrows) just left the Showrunners Panel at the Con. A panel member, non other than Rockne O'Bannon, the co-creator ofWarehouse 13, Defiance, and Revolution... who was also Farscape's creator and showrunner - has indeed CONFIRMED a Farscape movie is happening”.

Perhaps a crazy message from one fan to another, however, Spoilertv.com got a confirmation from Rockne O’Bannon that the movie is actually happening. 

"Yeah, yeah it’s the worst kept secret…We’re far from production, but yeah, the first step is Justin [Monjo] working on a script for us. We’ll keep our fingers crossed."

This is what we know so far about the Farscape Movie from Tor.com

Set to follow the awesome comics written by our favorite Keith R.A. DeCandido, the film would follow John and Aeryn's son, D'Argo (or Little D, as we will always refer to him). Because their baby was exhibiting a set of interesting powers that made him a magnet for galactic villains, we find that John and Aeryn hide their son on Earth to grow up. Now the kid is 19 and ready to go into space with his parents”.

As far as official press releases go, we will keep our eye our for them.

But isn't this movie already coming out this year.? They just exchanged Rygel for a Raccoon!

LOL! took the words right out of my mouth.

Guardians of the Galaxy is a rip of Fasrcape.

But, the creators of Farscape did say when they did the show, their influence was the 70s Guardians of the Galaxy. I guess what goes around, comes around.

 The heck with Guardians of the Galaxy... Farscape is a MASSIVE rip-off of the BBC TV show "Blake's 7".

 AWSOME news I love Farscape, I hope that the movie sees the light.

 ... Which was made to cash in Star Wars which in turn was made because Lucas couldn't get the rights to Buck Rogers which ironically became. TV series because of Star Wars...

I'm down for more Farscape. I'm still pissed at how SciFi screwed it up.

Farscape was hit or miss for me. Because sci-fi kept bouncing the show around the schedule so I just gave up. And the inconsistent quality of the show didn't help.

Hmmm have to wait and see how similar Farscape and GOTG will be.
