While Alan Rickman is “irreplaceable, forever,” Weaver says they’ve found a way to move forward with a follow-up.
galaxy search it’s a gem of a movie, and some would even say it’s the best Star trek film that Star trek never did. The story of a group of television actors in a canceled sci-fi series who are recruited by aliens to go on a real mission is consistently endearing, even if you’ve never seen an episode of a sci-fi series, but it really nails the quirks. . and details of the genre in a loving way.
Several years ago, Amazon sought to revive galaxy search as a TV series, but then a cast member Alan Rickman passed away unexpectedly, reason why the series stopped advancing. However, much like the movie’s most quotable line of “Never give up, never give up,” it seems that plans for a revival of some kind are still happening on some level.
Christina Radish recently spoke with galaxy search star Sigourney Weaver for his new movie My year Salinger, and Weaver, after explaining how the movie was modified for its release to be more familiar and then the false start with the TV series, talked about where things are now.

“They were in the middle of reliving it. First of all, there was another script. There was a sequel written by our writer, Bob Gordon. The movie was very nifty, and when they released it, DreamWorks cut out a lot of the nifty scenes because they wanted to release it as a kids’ movie at Christmas. I think it was a disappointment for everyone, so he decided not to let them have the second. However, it was about four years ago, Bob and (producer) Mark Johnson and the whole group, began to develop a series. We lost the wonderful Alan [Rickman] unexpectedly, so he got on mothballs, but I think they’re finally reviving him now, ”Weaver said.
“It will be the story of the former Galaxy Questers brought into this series with another young cast,” he continued. “I haven’t read them, so I don’t know the details, but I think everyone in galaxy search I would love to participate because it was a wonderful experience for us. How they will find someone to play the role of Alan, I don’t know, but I think they have a very good idea who to do it. It is irreplaceable, eternally. I think there may be good news on that front, but I haven’t heard of it in these six months so I’m not sure when it will happen.
That’s a good sign of life for a remake for galaxy search, although personally I always look at these revivals with a little fear. Sometimes it’s better to leave well enough alone, but again, galaxy search it will always be a classic. Perhaps it is time to return to the bridge of the NSEA Protector.
