JMS and Warner Brothers Throw Out Early Draft of “Forbidden Planet”

Due to leaks of the in process script for the remake/prequel of “Forbidden Planet” Screen Writer and Babylon 5 Creator JMS and Warner Bros have decided to toss out the old script and start anew.

Details Below….

Meanwhile, on a wholly different note…not of triumph but of
annoyance….because so much of the Forbidden Planet screenplay was
leaked out, Warners and I have decided to chuck the screenplay in its
entirety and start over. This is the direct result of the leaks that
showed up on the nets, including detailed script reviews of a project
that was barely a week old, and which would effectively destroy any
anticipation of the movie because by the time it finally reached the
screen in 2010 or thereabouts, the story would be old news. So we’re
starting fresh, and we’re going to keep a tight lid on the script this

So to the sites that say, “Where’s the harm, it’s not like they’re
gonna toss out the script because we blew the contents of same all
over the nets,” well, yes, that’s exactly what it’s like, and it’s
precisely your responsibility that a year’s worth of work was

So we start anew, with the determined hope that the next draft will be
even better, and far more secure, than the last one.
