On Feb. 21, Blastr.com reported that there may be a "Farscape" movie sequel in the works. The show aired on SyFy from 1999-2003 where it garnered a huge cult following. The show ended suddenly with a cliffhanger that had fans upset and prompted a follow up to the show titled, "Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars" that aired in 2004.
Fans have been trying to rally a return of the series and when the following was posted on Blastr.com from Inside Film fans are really hoping that this means a movie sequel is in the works:
"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. 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."
So, what do you think? Will this sequel come to fruition?
