Any NEW news re. B5 projects from JMS at the 2015 SDCC (if that's happened yet.)?

Nothing other than he still intends to write the feature film script this year.

Are there any likely opportunities in 2016 for some announcement on this, perhaps? I was thinking next year might be the year they'd hoped to start production.

Still hoping... :D

Hard to tell. JMS has so far talked about it at San Diego Comic-Con for the most part so that's a possibility but that's not until June.

Last night the word came down that JMS will be show-running the 'Red Mars' series based on the Kim Stanley Robinson books for Spike-TV so that may have an effect on timing.

He's always working on so many projects, I have no idea how he keeps up with it all. That's interesting, thanks a lot for the info.

I thought I'd bump this up a bit, since I believe San Diego's Comic Con is next Friday, July 22, 2016?

I was wondering if there might be some news on the status of a possible B5 reboot. :bolian:

I hope that something does come to fruition but I feel that too much time has now passed and we will likely never see any new babylon 5 content.

Hopefully I am wrong.

Yes, that is certainly the practical approach. I was hoping something might be said in the way of an update this Friday.

I'll be at JMS' spotlight on Friday afternoon and will be reporting back. First will be over at JMSnews (forums and facebook) then everyplace else.

BTW, since Red Mars was mentioned upthread, it's worth noting that he doesn't seem attached to that anymore and the project's on hold.

Here are the headlines from JMS' spotlight panel at SDCC. As far as the movie goes, the short answer is 'not yet' as JMS is still working up the 'street cred' of his studio in order to attract investors that will put up the hundred million or so needed.

Report on JMS' Spotlight panel at San Diego Comic-Con today:

Headlines:
- JMS had cataracts and Fuchs Corneal Dystrophy for several years but after successful surgery, now has better vision than ever

- There's an upcoming project involving three names: Bradbury, Gaiman and JMS.

- Midnight Nation will be becoming a TV series.

- Rising Stars has been optioned for a feature film.

- While there are still things to be finished up, JMS is leaving comics behind in order to concentrate on novels and plays along with TV and feature films.

- Re: The B5 movie, JMS is working on building his 'street cred' in order to be able to approach investors for over a hundred million dollars. He thinks after another TV show or two and a couple more feature films, he should have achieved that credibility for Studio JMS.
