As we told you in April, the wonderful 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest is getting the reboot treatment. Now Entertainment Weekly reports that the show will be produced by Amazon, though no cast or crew details have been announced yet. The film depicts the has-been cast of a beloved sci-fi show that bears more than a slight resemblance to Star Trek, who are cajoled into helping a peaceful alien race (they show old episodes of the show and mistook them for documentaries) into fighting off a malevolent race bent on destroying everything, as malevolent alien races tend to do. Should the show turn out to be awful, critics already have a bunch of quips already written for them: “Did you even watch the show?” “This episode was badly written.” “Whoever wrote this episode should die.”
