Xbox Originals to remake Blake’s 7 – rumour

Thursday, 15th August 2013 06:16 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Whisperers speaking to the Financial Times suggest Microsoft is producing a remake of classic late 1970′s BBC sci-fi series Blake’s 7. Microsoft is said to have financed the production but not committed to a full series, and Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is believed to be on board. It’s all part of Microsoft’s ongoing entertainment push, which includes a Steven Spielberg-directed Halo series and oodles of cable apps. Xbox Originals was also rumoured to be in talks to resurrect Heroes, too, but nothing has surfaced from that.

Thanks, Polygon.

    It was the Firefly of its day.

    But in a gritty, 80′s Britain, “they all die” kind of way.

    Basically mature sci-fi… With dodgy haircuts :)

    Okay, so THIS might just be Xbox One’s killer app for me.
