J. Michael Straczysnki Planning Babylon 5 Reboot

One of the things we missed in the information blast that is San Diego Comic Con was that J. Michael Straczynski is currently writing a feature film reboot of Babylon 5.

JMS is, of course, the creator and primary writer of most of Babylon 5, so this is one of those few times where a reboot doesn’t bother me and a creator revisiting their own work doesn’t bother me either (as he’s leaving the original TV series alone). The film would be a complete reboot of the premise, although JMS has said he’d like to bring back some of the original actors in different roles as an homage to the show’s original run.

Now before you get too excited (or at least the five other people who watched Babylon 5 with me way back), this movie has not been greenlit by any studio… yet.

But man, wouldn’t it be great?

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
