It was the dawn of the third age of mankind, ten years after the Earth/Minbari war. The Babylon 5 League was a dream given a forum.

New project latest

Postby Lord Reefer » Fri Jan 30, 2004 6:02 pm

Its coming !!!


Latest Jms News:

It's taken longer than hoped for to be able to talk about this, because it's
taken longer than hoped for to go through all the machinations of the deal.
Depending on the nature of a given deal, it can take a few weeks to a couple,
three months to actually cut the deal and finalize the language in terms
everybody can agree with. We only literally finished the deal last week.

Writing on B5:TMoS is complete, and as soon as the powers that be sign off on
everything, it can be turned in and we can start moving. At that point, I can
say more about this.

Figure another couple of weeks.

Anyone Know what B5:TMoS means ??? O.o

The T could stand for Telepath or Technomage maybe. Often if it starts with the word 'The' its often missed off. For example LOTR instead of TLOTR.

But I think you're right, it would be something cryptic or deep.

Its a real long shot but what I would really love would be something like:

The Migration Of Shadows

Big screen would be cool. At least we would get a proper 2 or 2.5 hour film. And the budget most likely would be bigger.

Y'know, if there's anything more annoying than having to sit on good news, I can't think of what it might be. (Well, okay, being staked to an ant hill at high noon is a pretty obvious one, but you get the idea.)

The only things I can say right now about B5:TMoS is that now that all the correct agreements have been signed, sealed and delivered, the draft has gone in, met with great enthusiasm all around, notes have been received, and the next draft is in process and has to be delievered within two weeks so that certain other steps can be set into motion.

I still can't tell you what it *is* because that has to come from the proper people through the proper channels at the proper time...but I can tell you a few cases of what it *isn't*...it isn't a novel, or a short story, a comic, an animated series, a radio drama or a stage play. Beyond that, deponent sayeth not.Colin.<*>.

it seems quite reasonable to assume that its a made-for-tv movie, to me...

My apologies for the prolonged absence, but the loss of Richard Biggs kind
of
took the wind out of our sails and it's taken a while for me to feel up to
saying anything about B5. This has also had the effect of slowing up
anything
to do with B5:TMoS (which as some of you have guessed or inferred does
indeed
stand for The Memory of Shadows), because in the writing we/I never imagined
he
wouldn't be here to be a part of it. More on that another time.

The funeral itself was a very moving ceremony. It was a point of some pride
that, although Richard had worked on a variety of shows, and all of them
were
present to varying degrees, the largest contingent was from Babylon 5. The
B5
family gathered in full strength, because whatever internecine hassles may
have
come up between anybody, there wasn't one person on that show who didn't
think
Richard was just a nifty, nifty guy.

There were many crew members present, from art department to camera and
office
staff...DP John Flinn, directors Tony Dow and Jesus Trevino, and literally
all
the major or minor cast members with the exception of Jeff Conaway (who was
out
of town and couldn't make it), Peter Jurasik (who was attending another
funeral
on the other side of the country) and Joshua Cox (ditto...it was a bad week
for
a lot of people).

So from the cast we had: Bruce, Jerry, Mira (and Goran), Andreas, Claudia,
Walter, Bill, Pat, Marjorie, Tracy, Stephen, Jason, Caitlin, and others I
may
have missed or forgotten. From the writing/producing side it was me,
Kathryn,
Larry DiTillio, Doug, John Copeland, Kevin Cremin, Skip Beaudine, others.

Out of respect for the privacy of the family, I won't go into details of the
ceremony itself. Suffice to say that he was dearly loved by all, and his
family is held in that same affection by everyone who was there.

I was going to go into more stuff here in general, but I don't seem to have
it
in me at the moment. More later, then.
