Amazon Is Developing Series Adaptation of “Galaxy Quest”

(via Deadline)

You may be tired of reboots, sequels, prequels, revivals, and/or adaptations, but we’re betting you’ll probably still give this a chance.

16 years ago, a fake spaceship crew became a real one in 1999′s Galaxy Quest and either enough time has passed or perhaps there is going to be such an influx of space based comedy shows following Other Space where Amazon wants to develop a series based on the movie with the writer, director, and producer of Galaxy Quest (Robert Gordon, Dean Parisot, and Mark Johnson respectively).

The project is still in its very beginning stages as no cast has been assembled yet. If Wet Hot American Summer can get their original cast back, Galaxy Quest has a good shot of getting Alan Rickman, Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Sam Rockwell, Tony Shaloub, and Daryl Mitchell all back.
