I have always assumed that the question of whether or not there would be a reboot of Space: 1999 was more a question of when, than if because, if television or feature films have taught us anything, it’s that updating something that already exists is easier than spending the time, money and effort to actually innovate.
That’s meant to be only partially snarky, because the remake of “Battlestar Galactica” improved significantly upon a series that was little more than a blatant “Star Wars” clone.
Jace Hall’s Space 2099, the version of Gerry Anderson’s original series most likely to reach production, due to the backing by iTV and Hall’s own HDFilms, is actually not in terms of actual development.
That honor would be reserved for Moonbase Alpha’s Legacy, developed by Eric Bernard
Unlike Hall’s Space 2099, there’s video available that illustrates how far Bernard’s version has progressed, and it’s pretty brilliant.
