Briefs : More films delayed, Dempsey returns for sequel, Galaxy Quest 2,D&D, Promos

Tim Allen says the long-proposed sequel to “Galaxy Quest” derailed when co-star Alan Rickman passed away-but he’s hopeful the film might still come to fruition one day.

“It’s a fabulous script, but it had a hiccup because the wonderful Alan Rickman passed. So it all got very sad and dark because [the script] was all about [Lazrus] and Taggart. It was all about their story. It doesn’t mean they can’t reboot the idea, and the underlying story was hysterical and fun.

I haven’t reached out to anybody in the last week, but we talk about it all the time. There is constantly a little flicker of a butane torch that we could reboot it with. Without giving too much away, a member of Alan [Rickman]’s Galaxy Quest family could step in and the idea would still work.”
