Classic British sci-fi series Blake's 7 (once adapted into a short-lived Marvel UK comic book) has been off the air for thirty years, but now Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, Green Lantern) has signed up to reimagine the series for a whole new audience. Hit the jump for details.
Deadline reports that Georgeville Television have teamed up with Green Lantern director Martin Campbell to bring back cult classic British sci-fi TV show, Blake's 7. He will direct the pilot (reimagined and written by Heroes' Joe Pokaski) which is currently being shopped to various US networks. The original series ran for four years back in 1978 and was later adapted into a comic book by Marvel UK; running for 23 issues in total.

These criminals without a code will gain a calling - the opportunity to become most unlikely, but most sorely needed heroes of their time."
