What’s going on with that Galaxy Quest TV show? According to writer Paul Scheer, the television spin-off of the 1999 sci-fi comedy is currently in a “hold pattern” due to some behind-the-scenes shake-ups. But when the series does arrive, it’s going to be “what The Force Awakens is to Star Wars.”

Back in August, we learned that actor/writer Paul Scheer had been hired by Amazon to write a TV adaptation of the 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest, a movie about a group of washed-up actors who used to star on a Star Trek-style sci-fi show who are swept up into a real space adventure. This is great news – Scheer’s comedic sensibilities are a perfect match for that world.
Yesterday, I had a chance to sit down and speak with him about his role in The Disaster Artist. While that full interview will be published closer to that film’s release, he gave me an update on Galaxy Quest that fans will be very excited to hear. He confirmed that the show will continue the story of the characters from the movie, and it’ll include two separate casts whose adventures merge as the season progresses. Read on for everything we know about the Galaxy Quest TV show so far.

Nearly a year ago, Amazon was working with Paramount Television on making a Galaxy Quest TV series come together with the original cast reprising their roles from the film of the same name. Unfortunately, co-star Alan Rickman passed away after that, and Sam Rockwell indicated that ended up putting a halt on any development for the series. But now the project is in development again and back on track to become a reality.
Amazon and Paramount Television have been working on the Galaxy Quest TV series for months now, and a new report has surfaced revealing Human Giant co-creator and The League co-star and writer Paul Scheer has been hired to write the script, replacing the previous scribe Robert Gordon. So what can we expect from this Galaxy Quest TV series? Read More »
It’s that glorious time of year when we get together with both the family members we love (and some that we could probably do without) to sit down for a tasty meal and hopefully not a big fight. But with an extended weekend upon us, you’ll likely have plenty of spare time while you’re hanging out with family, and you’re just not in the mood to talk anymore. That’s what it’s time to turn to Netflix to fill some time, and thankfully, there’s a wide variety of movies for you to watch with anyone and everyone in your family.
Below check out our Thanksgiving 2016 Netflix suggestions for some movies available right now that will help you pass some time and keep every single member of your family occupied. Read More »
Galaxy Quest has become quite the popular movie since its release. It wasn’t a runaway hit at the box office back in 1999, but it still pulled in just over $90 worldwide on a budget of just $45 million, according to Box Office Mojo. If that happened today, there would likely be a sequel fast-tracked into development. Sadly, it seems any chances of seeing Galaxy Quest 2 went away when Alan Rickman passed away earlier this year.
Instead of being sad that we’ll never see the crew from the NSEA Protector back on the big screen again, we can take the time to appreciate that the film still has some loyal fans. Thankfully, one of those fans is a talented artist named Andrew Kolb, and he’s just teamed up with Mondo to release a pair of fantastic new prints that imagine a world where Galaxy Quest action figures were available on shelves. Check out the Galaxy Quest prints after the jump. Read More »
Last Summer, I visited the set of Star Trek Beyond in Vancouver, Canada. Find out what I learned on set, including how over 50 new alien species were created for this film in honor of Trek’s 50th anniversary, how director Justin Lin has put an end to JJ Abrams’ “camera hand jobs” (yes, you just read that right) and much much more.

A few months ago, Alan Rickman passed away at the age of 69 and film fans the world over mourned the death of one of our finest actors. And today serves as another crushing reminder that we’re never going to see another performance from Rickman, since it has been revealed that his death led the cancellation of a planned sequel to the 199 comedy/science fiction classic Galaxy Quest. In a new interview, original cast member Sam Rockwell revealed that Galaxy Quest 2 almost happened, but Rickman’s death and other factors caused the whole thing to come undone.

We never gave Alan Rickman enough credit.
When he passed away yesterday at the age of 69, you could feel the tremors throughout all of film fandom. Wave upon wave of memories emerged: nuanced characters, brilliant performances, and an incalculable number of quotable lines. Rickman’s unique presence and one-of-a-kind voice imprinted itself on countless movies. Like so many great actors, especially those so skilled at providing their skills just off-center from the movie stars at the center of their films, we took him for granted.
With the passing of Alan Rickman, we have lost a quiet titan. However, the beauty of cinema is that he can live on forever in his work. His performances will never fade away. We will never stop watching him. Future generations will always discover him. Rickman, a master of raw humanism, chilling viciousness, and droll comedy alike, will be remembered.
So let’s start now.
