Blakes 7 reboot on its way?

July 24th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Next to Doctor Who, Blakes 7 must be one of the Beeb’s most cult shows… and it’s being rebooted for the US market

Green Lantern and Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is set to bring the new pilot to US screens.
The original 70s series was created by Terry Nation and told the story of a small group of escaped prisoners on a stolen alien space ship who flew around the galaxy fighting the oppressors.

Rumour is, according to deadline, that Joe Pokaski who wrote on Heroes and CSI will write this reboot which has no network yet but will be shopped around.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
