Big news for my fellow Farscape fans out there (and no, it’s not that I’m resuming my Farscape rewatch blogging–though I do plan to do that soon, and thank you for considering that “big news,” oh hypothetical reader…)! Farscape creator Rockne O’Bannon let it slip at Wondercon that Justin Monjo, writer of 14 episodes of the series, is currently penning the script for a Farscape movie.
It was only a brief mention at the end of an interview, and who knows if it’s going to be a Serenity-style theatrical movie or another mini-series like The Peacekeeper Wars, but here’s hoping it makes it through pre-production and gets onto a screen of some size!
Word is already spreading, though I myself heard it via a tweet by Gigi Edgley (Chiana):
FARSCAPE THE MOVIE!!! http://t.co/KSLQjPmHtD @CreatureShopTV #JimHensonSyfy @SyfyTV

Click the link in the tweet for more info. The mention of @SyFyTV would imply that it’s not headed to the big screen, but either way, I’ll take it.
Here’s the video linked in the article. Fast forward to 2:20…
