The new version of the 1965 Erwin Allen TV cult classic is described as an epic but grounded science fiction saga focusing on a young explorer family from earth lost in an alien universe and the challenges they face in staying together against seemingly insurmountable odds.
The Lost in Space remake hails from Dracula Untold writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, who will executive-produce with Kevin Burns of Synthesis Entertainment, as well as Neil Marshall and Marc Helwig of Legendary TV-based Applebox. It’s expected that Marshall will direct.
There were a few failed attempts to revive the series over the years. In 1998, a movie starring Matt LeBlanc, William Hurt and Gary Oldman flopped in theaters, and in 2004, a TV movie never made it out of production.
