Sequel to Galaxy Quest Not Moving Forward at Amazon After the Passing of Alan Rickman

(via Uproxx/Nerdist podcast)

Finally, there’s some restraint in Hollywood.

The swell of sequels, remakes and reboots in movies and TV continues strong as ever these days. Often times, the death of a crucial cast member often won’t stop such plans no matter how awkward the finished product might be. 

That being said, the recently deceased Alan Rickman has halted the plans for the supposed Galaxy Quest sequel that was in the works over at Amazon Studios. Sam Rockwell, who was on board for a sequel, made the announcement while on the latest episode of the Nerdist podcast.

While more Galaxy Quest might not be in the cards for us, it’s a great nod to how incredibly singular Alan Rickman really was.
