One of my favorite science fiction series of all time Babylon 5 is getting a reboot and a new movie according to ScreenRant. Apparently i’m a little late to this party but i’m cautiously excited!

Six to seven years ago we reported on news that Warner Bros. was in talks with J. Michael Straczynski about bringing back one of his most notable creations, Babylon 5, in the form of a “big budget” feature film. We haven’t talked about it since and even back then, we didn’t know how big the budget estimate actually was. Nothing happened and the project was seemingly dead.

Straczynski however, is reviving hope once again for a return of the franchise – or better yet, a fresh beginning. At Comic-Con last month, according to TVWise, the writer and creator of Babylon 5, Jeremiah and the upcoming Netflix series Sense8 (which Straczynski co-created with the Wachowskis), revealed that he’s working on a screenplay for a Babylon 5 feature film and aiming to have it completed in 2015 for a 2016 production start.

  • I really, really, REALLY want this to happen – this is still my favorite TV series ever. But given the past history of B-5, I’ve unfortunately learned not to get my hopes up too much.
