Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski is hard at work on a remake of the classic SciFi series Forbidden Planet.

Considered how Straczynski totally butchered Babylon 5 with the Lost Tales – I’m not sure this is a good thing. Maybe he’ll make Robbie the Robot into a human or something….

Released in 1956, Planet told the tale of an expedition sent from Earth to check on a colony of scientists on a far-off planet. They find two members, a man who has found alien technology that doubled his intellect, Dr. Morbius, and his daughter, both of whom have managed to survive an unseen monster roaming the planet.

There is no reason to remake the movie. It is a masterpiece.
