It's now been confirmed that Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) is on board as both a producer AND a director for several episodes of Netflix's Lost in Space update. The show also has a show-runner in the form of Prison Break's Zack Estrin.
Lost in Space is being developed as a 10-part series to air in 2018 but Legendary TV for Netflix...
Irwin Allen's Lost In Space isn't a stranger to remakes. The disappointing 1998 attempt at a big-screen reboot featuring William Hurt, Gary Oldman and Matt LeBlanc was a bit of a misfire by anyone's yardstick yet it remains a property ripe for a proper series-based remake - and now, thanks to Netflix we're getting one!
Kevin Burns is producing the show and what really has us excited is the involvement of Neil Marshall (The Descent and Game of Thrones) who will be producing and hopefully directing. The series is being written initially by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.
Lost in Space tells the story of the Robinson family who get lost in space due to the meddling of Doctor Zachary Smith.
So, while we're not getting our dream of a Netflix-backed Star Trek, one of its 60s contemporaries will be filling that sci-fi void for us instead. Exciting!
