Possible Farscape movie in the works

Farscape(1)

The current rumor going around is that Farscape might be coming back.  There seems to be some truth to this rumor because Justin Monjo is supposedly working on the script.  Monjo wrote a few of the Farscape episode.  Brian Henson is supposed to be directing it.

The prolific Monjo is also writing the screenplay for Farscape, a movie spin-off of the sci-fi series that ran on the Nine Network and the Sci-Fi Channel in the US, for Jim Henson Productions, to be directed by Brian Henson.

Hearing that makes me very excited because I loved watching Farscape and I remember watch the Peacekeeper Wars just so I could find out how it ended.  I would love for them to bring this back as a show or a movie.  It had a good storyline, amazing costumes and make-up, great special effects, and of course Henson muppets aka Rygel.

“In the finale, the protagonists, American astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder) and peacekeeper Aeryn Sun (Claudia Black) got married and had a baby. In the movie, it’s revealed the boy had special powers which made him the target of the villainous aliens so his parents hide him on Earth. The plot follows the kid at the age of 19 when his whereabouts have been discovered and he rejoins his parents on their spaceship.”

It looks like the new movie will center on Crichton and Aeryn’s son.  That could only mean that Ben Brower and Claudia Black are reprising their roles.

I hope that also means that we will be seeing Moya and Pilot again.  Naturally we will want to see anyone else they get to reprise their roles.

It will be filmed in Australia, which is where Farscape was mostly filmed.  I hope that means we will be seeing some of the locations that we know and love again.

I know I will be tuning in to watch this when it comes out.
