A Farscape movie is in the works

A Farscape movie is in development, a decade after Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars provided closure to fans left hanging by the original series' final episode. Screenwriter Justin Monjo has reportedly written a script for the spinoff, to be directed by Brian Henson (son of Jim Henson), Executive Producer of the show's original four-season run and director of Peacekeeper Wars.

News of the movie spinoff originally broke from if.com, but Tor gives a good summary of the reboot's reported plot:

Set to follow the awesome comics written by our favorite Keith R.A. DeCandido, the film would follow John and Aeryn's son, D'Argo (or Little D, as we will always refer to him). Because their baby was exhibiting a set of interesting powers that made him a magnet for galactic villains, we find that John and Aeryn hide their son on Earth to grow up. Now the kid is 19 and ready to go into space with his parents.

As if that weren't enough to get excited about, Monjo is also said to be developing a new series for HBO called Mongo. The show is based on the detective series by George C. Chesbro, with a lead role Monjo reportedly wrote specifically for Peter Dinklage.

A new Farscape movie AND a new HBO series led by Peter Dinklage? Is there such a thing as too much good news?
