Farscape Movie Is In the Works and Peter Dinklage is Set to Star in Another HBO Series!

It turns out that if.com slid a gem past the world today, announcing that screenwriter Justin Mondo is penning two projects that are bound to make SFF fans lose their minds.

You know, just another show starring Peter Dinklage and a Farscape television movie. No big deal.

Monjo is said to be writing a show that would star Dinklage as a dwarf detective for HBO. The series would be produced by Ben Stiller’s production company, Red Hour. Dinklage is currently in talks for the show, which would be titled The Beasts of Valhalla, based on a series of books by George C. Chesbro. Monjo had Dinklage in mind before he started writing, so let’s hope that works out!

And then, you know… there’s that Farscape movie thing.

It turns out that Monjo has also written a screenplay for what would likely be a Farscape television movie. Set to follow the awesome comics written by our favorite Keith R.A. DeCandido, the film would follow John and Aeryn’s son, D’Argo (or Little D, as we will always refer to him). Because their baby was exhibiting a set of interesting powers that made him a magnet for galactic villains, we find that John and Aeryn hide their son on Earth to grow up. Now the kid is 19 and ready to go into space with his parents.

D’Argo in space! With his amazing super parents! And then they could go visit Chiana and Rygel and Noranti…


Don’t hold out on us, world. If we got a Farscape fix more than a decade after it’s final bow, we’d believe in fairies again.
