New "Lost in Space" flick still in the works

New "Lost in Space" flick still in the works

S.S Wilson, creator of the "Tremors" films and upcoming series, told Sci Fi Wire that the proposed Lost in Space television reunion movie and backdoor pilot might still come together, despite the death last November of original series star Jonathan Harris. It was derailed a little bit, and we were all deeply saddened by the loss of Jonathan Harris, because he was written into it in a big way," Wilson said in an interview.

"The producer there and the engine behind that project, Kevin Burns, is talking with me and my partner, Brent Maddock, about ways to revise it now to deal with the fact Jonathan is no longer here."

Wilson added, "We’ve got a really good take on what to do, and once Brent and I get any time at all, we’re possibly going to do a revision and get it back on track. Everybody’s still very excited about it. Reunion shows are very, very popular on television right now, and there’s a lot of interest in it for that reason alone." Wilson said that Burns has managed to keep the original cast members interested and involved.

The proposed television movie would bring the Jupiter II crew home and, in the process, strand a new group of people in space. Wilson said that Burns came to him in part because of his work on the SCI FI Channel’s upcoming original show Tremors: The Series. Burns told Wilson, "’Here’s the problem: How do you find the original people and then end up lost yourself?’ That was one of the bigger problems Brent and I solved in the script. But I will maintain the secrecy of that in case it ever gets made."
