A Farscape Community
Syfy (ended 2004)
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 the Con. A panel member, non other than Rockne O'Bannon, the co-creator of Warehouse 13, Defiance, and Revolution... who was also Farscape's creator and showrunner - has indeed CONFIRMED a Farscape movie is happening.

As reported here before, Justin Monjo had written a script for a Farscape movie and Brian Henson was set to direct and obviously provide the Jim Henson Creature Shop facilities (Is There a New Farscape Movie in the Works!?!?) but it appears it was made official TONIGHT.

I will chat with Paul further Sunday, Easter Bunny willing, and see if I can find any more out for all of us 'Scapers!

UPDATE: I had asked the good folks at SpoilerTV to confirm this for me since they have reporters at WonderCon. And indeed they have! (thanks @LOST-TWD-PP-GOT)

MOVIES: Farscape Movie confirmed by Rockne O'Bannon at WonderCon

UPDATE x2: I had written io9 to look into it was well. We received a nice mention when they confirmed it: "Confirmation comes by way of TV.com: The Farscape Movie is Officially Happening"

YAY. Just call me "Scoop"

UPDATE x3: Paul also said that Rockne O'Bannon is giving a lot of credit to Brian Henson for making this happen. He referred to him as "A dog with a bone" and that he wasn't going to let the idea of more Farscape go.

Are you serious dude?! That's pretty nuts! I actually was happy with the way the show ended. I wonder what the movie is going to be about?

I know the New Comic Book line is supposed to Bridge the Gap, but i havent read those. I know i am missing something here, but i thought the Ancient Einstein took the Wormhole Knowledge from Chrichton's head, so i am just curious as to how the hell John and Aeryn put him on earth in the first place if john doesn't have the Wormhole knowledge anymore...

All 90 minutes would be well spent on 2 Farscape episodes.

Only if some other douchebag tried to "reboot" it.

With the band back together - they can't go wrong. We are in such NEED of good sci-fi right now. Thank God Almost Human looks like it'll be renewed.

Oh, that Harvey... I kinda wish (scratch the kinda) that he wasn't dead in John's brain. (I don't follow the comics, as I generally think that's where heroes and ideas go to die).

I think if John calls on him in the movie - he will show. I know they kind of ended him in PK Wars, but just like bringing D'Argo back - where there is a will...

Am I dead ? Is it heaven ? WOAAAH Amazing news . A Farscape movie. And confirmed by O'Bannon himself. Now I know that interest would be minimal (unless they got the best marketing campaign for movie ever. In niche cult series like that buzz among fans or potential fans are what gathers BO) but still guys. A Farscape movie.....just hope to reignite the interest in franchise. Now only thing required is bringing David Kemper back to production team (the way I think he was the one who pushed the boundries) and Wayne Pygram to his leather costume...

With a screen name like that you must be a quite the fan. io9 (best science and sci-fi site there is IMHO) wrote up their own story based on mine. The comments have been fun - and there a lot of them. YOu should drop in. A lot of celebration (and a few douchebags)
