Lost In Space Getting Rebooted At Netflix

New Updated ‘Lost in Space’ Series Coming Exclusively to Netflix ​

 

Beverly Hills, CA – June 29, 2016 – Netflix, the world’s leading Internet TV network, has ordered a 10-episode first season of the one-hour sci-fi drama, from Legendary TV, based on the beloved 1960’s sci-fi classic from Irwin Allen. Reimagined by feature writing team Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold, Last Witch Hunter), with Zack Estrin (Prison Break) showrunning, the series will premiere worldwide on Netflix in 2018.

Taking its cues from the original series, the show centers around the Robinson family, who is forced to come together in a time of crisis. Stranded light years from their intended destination, they find themselves battling a strange new alien environment and also their own personal demons. Equal parts family drama and sci-fi adventure, it is a survival story for the ages.

“The original series so deftly captured both drama and comedy, and that made it very appealing to a broad audience. The current creative team’s reimagining of the series for Netflix is sure to appeal to both fans who fondly remember the original and to create a new generation of enthusiasts around the world,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President of Original Content.

Zack Estrin serves as executive producer alongside writers Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless; Synthesis Entertainment’s Kevin Burns (The Curse of Oak Island, Ancient Aliens) and Jon Jashni (Godzilla, Pacific Rim); and Applebox’s Emmy®-nominated director Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, The Descent) and Marc Helwig. Marshall is also set to direct several episodes of the series. Lost in Space is a Legendary TV production for Netflix.

Guillermo Del Toro Says Pacific Rim 2 Is Still In Development

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:23767:]]

Contrary to an earlier report from last Thursday that stated Pacific Rim 2 has been shelved, the sequel to the 2013 film is stated to still be in development.

Following a report by THR, Guillermo Del Toro took to Twitter today to state Pacific Rim 2 is still being worked on.

“[Pacific] Rim 2 cancelled? Don’t believe everything you read. It’s still going and I’ll remain [with] it in one way or another!” Del Toro tweeted.

Guillermo Del Toro was originally supposed to start production on Pacific Rim 2 following Crimson Peak, but Universal Studios recently removed the movie from their schedule leading to the speculation it wasn’t happening. In addition, Del Toro is said to be in talks to direct the Fantastic Voyage remake, which only added to the thought that Pacific Rim 2 was all but done for.

The good news is not only has Guillermo Del Toro put the rumors to rest, but the Chinese have purchased Legendary Entertainment; Pacific Rim did well in China, so as THR notes, that may mean the sequel is more likely.
