Farscape movie in the works, confirms original series writer

From Digital Spy

Farscape could return for a new movie, writer Justin Monjo has claimed.

Monjo - who penned 14 episodes of the sci-fi drama - told If.com.au that he is writing a follow-up film.

The Farscape movie would be set several years after 2004 mini-series The Peacekeeper Wars and would follow the 19-year-old son of John Crichton (Ben Browder) and Aeryn Sun (Claudia Black).

Possessing special powers that make him a target for villainous aliens, the film's young lead would rejoin his parents aboard their spaceship after years hiding out on Earth.

Monjo claimed that the spinoff will be shot in Australia and directed by Brian Henson of Jim Henson Productions - exec producer on the original series.

Last year, Farscape co-creator Rockne S O'Bannon insisted that a new movie was "not out of the question".

"We continue to talk about it," O'Bannon confirmed in April. "I would love to go and revisit that world.
