Galaxy Quest has a new scribe. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fresh Off the Boat star Paul Scheer will take over as writer for the Amazon TV show.
Based on the 1999 film, the comedy “centered on the cast of a canceled, beloved sci-fi show that was forced to reunite to save the planet after aliens believe their show was real.” The movie starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, and Sam Rockwell.
Scheer is replacing the film’s writer Robert Gordon on the Amazon reboot series. Gordon will still executive produce the project alongside Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. As of now, it’s unclear if any of the movie’s original stars will return for the Galaxy Quest TV show.
