NEWS: Space 1999 Remake

Yes, a Space 1999 remake is on the cards. And yes, as you can see from the above promo image (A) the Eagles are still present in some form (awesome!) and (B) the remake will be known as Space 2099 - because by 1999 we still hadn't ended-up living on the moon with robot wives who fed us special space pill dinners while we played Pong in shiny silver jumpsuits. The future totally lied to me.

Anyway, according  The Hollywood Reporter (via io9) the remake is being developed jointly with ITV Studios (the British TV channel that aired the original) and HDFILMS, the people behind the V remake. Hopefully this new project will be a little more successful in updating the original than their take on the lizards-in-disguise alien invasion mini-series.

Space 2099 is still in the early stages of development and has yet to be pitched to any TV network but colour us quietly excited. After all, who'd have thought an update to a cheesy Star Wars-For-TV adventure series could produce something as awesome as the Battlestar Galactica remake?


  1. One of my favorites! I can't wait to see this remake.

    1. Could be good - if they can get past the utter implausibility of it all!
