While Star Wars parodies are many and varied, Star Trek has also inspired its own fair share of space-centered films. One of the best of the bunch was 1999’s Galaxy Quest , featuring an eclectic cast of space adventurers including Tim Allen, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, and Sigourney Weaver. In a recent interview with Collider, Weaver confirmed that a revival of the franchise is currently in the works. “They were in the middle of reviving it. First of all, there was another script. There was a sequel written by our writer, Bob Gordon. The movie was so witty, and when they released it, DreamWorks cut a lot of the wittiest scenes because they wanted to put it out as a children’s movie at Christmas. I think that was disappointing for everybody, so he decided not to let them have the second one. However, it was about four years ago, Bob and (producer) Mark Johnson and the whole group, started to develop a series. We lost the wonderful Alan [Rickman] unexpectedly, so that was put in mothballs, but I think they are finally now reviving it.” RELATED: Galaxy Quest 2 Can Still Happen Without Alan Rickman, But Dr. Lazarus… Read full this story
