'Galaxy Quest' Sequel Was Really Close To Happening This Year, But Now Won't

April 6, 2016


In case we somehow needed another reason to mourn the untimely loss of Alan Rickman, Sam Rockwell just gave us one. Speaking on the Nerdist podcast (via), Rockwell just revealed that Amazon had given the greenlight on a Galaxy Quest sequel, and it would have shot this year were it not for scheduling issues colliding with Rickman's death.

"They were going to do a sequel on Amazon," Rockwell said of the 1999 sci-fi comedy. "We were ready to sign up, and Alan Rickman passed away and Tim Allen wasn't available--he has a show--and everybody's schedule was all weird. It was going to shoot, like, right now. And how do you fill that void of Alan Rickman? That's a hard void to fill."

Now we all must feel the anguish of the unwavering indifference of God meeting the unwavering production timeline of ABC's Last Man Standing.
