Rising Stars Movie Announced

Posted on: 19 June, 2016

In typical JMS fashion, this post appeared on the “Fans of J. Michael Straczynski” Facebook group at the beginning of June:

Naturally, fans of Babylon 5 were seriously hoping this would be an announcement relating to the long-awaited reboot of Babylon 5, however, about a week later, the news broke that MGM has optioned to make a movie out of “Rising Stars”, a comic series written by JMS staring in 1999.

I think this is the first JMS-created property to get a movie release, if all goes well with the production, unless I’m mistaken?
