Script Review: Forbidden Planet Could Be James Cameron's Next
By Josh Tyler: 2010-05-12 21:59:41
Avatar is out on DVD and still we don't know what director James Cameron
plans to do next. Cameron remains indecisive, though he has a laundry list of movie projects he's considering being involved in. Among them Avatar 2, Battle Angel Alita, another underwater movie no one wants to see called The Dive, and Forbidden Planet. As recently as a couple of months ago Cameron confirmed that he was actively involved in developing Forbidden Planet but hadn't “made any decisions about it yet.” We're still waiting for him to make one.

The Original Iron Man: Remembering Forbidden Planet
by Adam Frank. May 9, 2010, 12:09 pm
"Hey, wake up. I want you to see this."

I was about 9 years old and my dad was gently shaking me back into consciousness. I knew it was going to be another late night TV movie. He did this every now and then, getting me up to watch some gem that I, in my 1970s youth, was bound to miss without him. Once it was the original Christmas Carol, another time it was Gregory Peck in Moby Dick. I shuffled out into the living room bleary eyed and excited. I had no idea what a world of wonders I was about to enter.

"Monsters from the Id!"
Forbidden Planet Remake / Steven Lloyd Wilson
November 25, 2009

J. Michael Straczynski has signed on to write a remake of the 1956 classic sci-fi film The Forbidden Planet. Echoing the story of The Tempest, it envisions an abandoned planet, its inhabitants far advanced beyond humanity and apparently extinguished in a single night two hundred thousand years previously. Their technology churns on without them but when a human expedition lands, it too is wiped out mysteriously, leaving only an old scientist and his daughter as survivors. The story picks up twenty years later as a second expedition arrives, and anything but hilarity ensues.

11.25.09 By: Zachary Herrmann
It's been a little over a year since Warner Bros. announced that J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5 creator, Changeling) would be penning the studio's Forbidden Planet remake, and for better or worse, the project finally seems to be moving forward. Straczynski is now working on a draft of the screenplay, which he notes will be faithful to the original while filling in more back story.

Dreamworks seeking screenwriters for FORBIDDEN PLANET remake
Published on Thursday, February 6, 2003 - 12:17am
Hey folks, Harry here... FORBIDDEN PLANET is a project that's been in the hell of development for what seems like ages. One of the problems they've had is that everytime they develop it, they keep running back into the original, which is of course genius. A very long time ago Irvin Kershner (director of STAKEOUT ON DOPE STREET) was developing it... to such a point that Stan Winston had built props and they were ready to go and... well it fell apart. Another time it was looking like James Cameron was going to make FORBIDDEN PLANET. Then when the project showed up at New Line it looked like Frank Darabont was going to write it. Well, New Line threw up their hands as well, but when Michael Deluca landed at Dreamworks, and New Line surrendered development on FORBIDDEN PLANET, well Deluca picked it up for the second time, but at a new studio.
