Rockne O'Bannon Officially Confirms FARSCAPE Movie

Rockne O'Bannon Officially Confirms FARSCAPE Movie

Fans of the TV sci-fi rejoice! Farscape creator Rockne O'Bannon has confirmed that the Farscape movie is indeed happening. Find out what he had to say at Wondercon after the jump.



After years of rumours, Rockne O'Bannon has finally confirmed that a Farscape movie is actually happening. The show was cancelled back in 2003 and a mini-series titled Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars was aired in 2004 to provide closure to the fans but it appears we shall be getting more Farscape in the near future. Confirmation comes from TV.com's Ed Shrinker who had a friend that attended the Showrunners panel at Wondercon which O'Bannon was apart of. 

Just a little bit of, maybe interesting, information to report. ;-p Texting me from WonderCon, a very good friend of mine (@PaulBurrows) just left the Showrunners Panel at [WonderCon]. A panel member, non other than Rockne O'Bannon, the co-creator ofWarehouse 13, Defiance, and Revolution... who was also Farscape's creator and showrunner - has indeed CONFIRMED a Farscape movie is happening.



Nerdacy.com then spoke to O'Bannon who confirmed that the script is currently being written by a former writer for the series, Justin Monjo.

"Yeah, yeah it's the worst kept secret…We're far from production, but yeah, the first step is Justin [Monjo] working on a script for us. We'll keep our fingers crossed."



Tor.com provided the rumoured plot for the film back in February:

Set to follow the awesome comics written by our favorite Keith R.A. DeCandido, the film would follow John and Aeryn's son, D'Argo (or Little D, as we will always refer to him). Because their baby was exhibiting a set of interesting powers that made him a magnet for galactic villains, we find that John and Aeryn hide their son on Earth to grow up. Now the kid is 19 and ready to go into space with his parents.



There is currently no word whether or not the original cast will return but I don't think they'll be too busy not to join the film. Are you excited to see the return of John Crichton of the gang? Or were to satisfied with the 2004 mini-series?

Thrown into a distant part of the universe, an Earth astronaut finds himself part of a fugitive alien starship crew. Farscape (1999–2003) is an Australian and American science fiction television series, produced originally for the Nine Network. The series was conceived by Rockne S. O'Bannon and produced by Jim Henson Productions and Hallmark Entertainment.
