Crown International Pictures have set writer/producer Mark A. Altman (“The Librarians”) to develop and showrun a sci-fi TV series based on William Sachs’ 1980 low-budget science fantasy comedy film “Galaxina”.
Dorothy Stratten, Stephen Macht, Avery Schreiber and J.D. Hinton starred in the original about a cybernetic being who holds the key to the discovery of the mysterious Blue Star crystal. The film spoofed various sci-fi and western films.
The new reimagined small screen take is said to be a “high-octane, sophisticated, sci-fi thriller with first-class production values that will reimagine the original property into a 21st century motion picture with an edgy, smart cable vibe.”
Crown is going out to distributors shortly. Altman is also working on a new take on Crown’s 1983 coming-of-age meets softcore porn indie film “My Tutor” which starred Matt Latanzi.
