Nineties kids rejoice! A TV series based on the cult classic movie Galaxy Quest is in the works, Deadline reports.
The 1999 DreamWorks movie starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Sam Rockwell and Daryl Mitchell as has-been actors, making a living through a bout of sci-fi conventions for their long-cancelled television show. But things change when a group of aliens believe these actors are real-life superheroes, turning to them for help to save their civilization.
“Tim's character is too vain to tell them that we're only actors,” Weaver told ET on set. “We have to go through this thing and bluff our way through it.”
“This is really inventive it's just really cool,” Allen said back then. “The script is wonderful and Sigourney’s in it, Alan Rickman's in it, we've got such a great cast in this thing. Really, you'll love all the characters and it's really exciting.”
The movie also starred Tony Shalhoub, Enrico Colantoni, Patrick Breen, Missi Pyle and Justin Long.
