Lost In Space Remake TV Series In Development

After a film flop in 1998, and a failed TV pilot directed by John Woo in 2003, Lost In Space – the 1960 TV series from the Irwin Allen hit factory – is making another attempt at  comeback, this time at Netflix.

Deadline reports that the streaming service outbid a number of other outlets for the project, which is being made by Legendary TV, the TV wing of Legendary Pictures. Currently, Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, Doomsday, The Descent) is attached to direct the pilot which seems to suggest that the new show will be a long way in tone from the campy adventures of the original.

Indeed, this new Lost In Space is described as an epic-but-grounded science fiction saga focusing on a young explorer family from Earth lost in an alien universe, chronicling the challenges they face against seemingly insurmountable odds. The original featured giant sentient carrots. Okay, we’re being mean – that was just one episode out of 83, but the show did grow increasingly silly as it sent on. As was ever the case with all Irwin Allen-produced shows (Voyage To The Bottom of The Sea, Land Of Giants, Time Tunnel)

Maybe somebody could have a nightmare about talking vegetables in the new series… just as an Easter egg, you know?
