A ‘Farscape’ movie is coming to a TV near you


Farscape_LogoFor me the number one rule of the television is no one really dies. Apparently, that’s true for the shows as well as their characters. Not that I’m complaining! Yesterday, we found out that Heroes is coming back for a short run much like 24. Someone whispered the words “limited run” in relation to Firefly although there’s certainly been no actual announcements. Veronica Mars has it’s own fan funded movie coming and now cult classic Farscape is following suit. At the moment, Justin Monjo is still working on the script of the made for TV movie, but there’s been a few interesting tidbits dropped already over at if.com:

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. Monjo says the film would be shot in Australia.

No word yet if Ben Browder and Claudia Black are up for reprising their roles.
