Forbidden Planet: Trilogy (TBA)
Warner Brothers and producer Joel Silver are developing an updated remake of the classic science fiction film. According to IESB, James Cameron has interest again and may direct. Cameron has been "eyeing" the project since 1998. They've hired J. Michael Straczynski who wrote for Babylon 5 and recently the script for Ninja Assassin. Latino Review is reporting that the project is a planned three story ark. This means it will be a trilogy with the first film a prequel rather than a remake. Depending on the progress of Battle Angel this could be next project for James Cameron. The film influenced a majority of science fiction properties which include Star Trek and the Alien series.
"a group of Earth scientists who are sent some 17 light years away to investigate what happened to a colony of settlers on Altair-4. They find a man with a secret and his daughter who somehow survived a hideous monster attack on their planet."
