Battle Beyond the Stars remake? What the…?!?!?

Posted by LiveFor on September 16, 2008

Not definitely a Battle Beyond the Stars remake but it sure sounds like it. The next sci-fi movie script to get the big-screen treatment is one by Shane Salerno called “The Doomsday Protocol”, which according to The Hollywood Reporter, sounds a lot like “Seven Samurai” in outer space. Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai” concerned seven masterless swordsmen who are hired by poor villagers to protect their home from bandits. It was later adapted into the American Western “The Magnificent Seven” and the aforementioned Battle Beyond the Stars amongst others.

From THR:
In a seven-figure deal, Fox has picked up “Doomsday Protocol,” an original spec by Shane Salerno.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is known to be an epic science fiction adventure in the vein of “The Seven Samurai” involving a group of aliens and humans with various abilities who are brought together to save Earth.
Fox’s Alex Young developed the project with Salerno and will oversee.
Salerno, repped by Endeavor, has the actioners “Alien vs. Predator: Requiem,” “Ghost Rider,” “Shaft” and “Armageddon” among his credits.
