    I must also admit that I got into Serenity/Firefly after they were cancelled and it's a phenomenal series as well. What makes both that series and B5 is the writing foremost and the way the actors grew and interacted as well.

    I don't get on here very often but every once in awhile I get the itch and come back hoping to see that a B5 movie is in the works but alas I have to wait longer. I do believe, however, that it will happen.
    oh yeah, same here I would much rather back a TV series than a movie. Five seasons to fine tune and make a great series versus A few potentially duff movies

    I admit, there's been a brief debate over whether we call JMS or Joss Whedon first... I do loves me some Firefly.

    This is also why I usually wait until the Powerball hits above $200 million before I play: split the remainder.

    Or you know, think REAL big... conference call with those two, Neil Gaiman, and Russel T Davies.

    Of course, that might accidentally the Earth.

    In our house, the argument would be over who gets to make the call to JMS ...

    finally! an advantage to being single! I can be free to spend my (at present virtual) millions on JMS without wifely moderating voices.

    I've mentioned this to my wife several times over the years that if I had won tens of millions of dollars or more that I would personally contribute to a new Babylon 5 Universe project. Her response has always been the same: "Obviously I would have to be in charge of the finances" (lol). Oh well, we can all dream.

    Me, too. I only meant a B5 movie or nothing and that includes Crusade.

    I'd like to write JMS a personal check for $100 million dollars and let him make something, tis a dream of mine. I wouldn't even want a credit or mention in any way, even if it tanks we'd still watch it, right?

    I know, it's just that getting into the movie business as a new multimillionaire, is a great way to get fleeced/lose everything. I wouldn't want to deal with the people that JMS has to deal with. Instead, I'd let JMS, who has a lot more experience in that, do it. I'd allocate a sizable portion of my winnings to JMS for a restart of Crusade, with the original cast, and finance five full seasons upfront.

    Well, there's always Kickstarter. If only B5 had 100x the popularity of Order of the Stick...

    Initial Goal: $57,750
    Final Tally: $1,254,120.

    Hi mattius, welcome.

    Last I heard, JMS had a 100 million dollar budget in mind for a B5 film. I don't think even the most dedicated fans would be able to raise that kind of money. And JMS has made it clear that he won't go along with any more low-budget B5 offerings.
