Rockne O’Bannon Confirms ‘Farscape’ Movie in the Works!

Farscape cast

A lot of wonder came out of last weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim, California.

The latest buzz? A Farscape movie, confirmed by show creator Rockne O’Bannon himself!

“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.”

According to io9, a rumor was circulating back in February that Monjo has already finished a script, so…who knows? Here’s another thing: The previously-rumored script was for a spin-off movie with the following plot, according to Tor:

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.

Maybe Monjo trashed the script and started over?

We’ll definitely be following this story closely!

  1. Yeah, I’d heard this reported elsewhere on the web a few weeks back, and I heard the film was going to center on Crichton’s kid, not the cast we’re near and dear to. However, I would certainly hope they’d trash anything KRAD had done in the comics b/c, quite frankly, it was awful. I know fanboys who worship KRAD, but I find him one of the worst writers around.
