SyFy is rebooting another beloved sci-fi classic. This time, it’s Terry Nation’s Blake’s 7, which premiered on the BBC in 1978 and ran four season for 52 episodes. (Here’s the Wikipedia page if you need a quick refresher.)

Blake’s 7 was about renegades and criminals who escape from a prison planet, and while battling humans and aliens wound up becoming heroes in the process.

The reboot is being helmed by Georgeville Television and producer Marc Rosen. Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, Green Lantern) will direct the pilot script, which is being written by Joe Pokaski (Heroes, CSI).

By Joan Alperin-Schwartz: Okay, so this is how the story goes...In a universe far, far away (where else would it be) an elite, powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps.

Hitting the box office this week are the Ryan Reynolds comic book vehicle “Green Lantern,” the Jim Carrey comedy “Mr. Popper’s Pe...
