J. Michael Straczynski was the Ronald D. Moore of the 90s. As the mind behind Babylon 5 he broke new ground on television and in science fiction. He’s since gone on to mainstream, Hollywood film success as the writer of Clint Eastwood’s Oscar nominated film Changeling and JMS is now a heavily sought after screenwriter. That doesn’t mean he’s forgotten his science fiction roots.

Among the many projects on his plate, Straczynski is working on an adaptation of the classic “Lensman” stories of E.E. "Doc" Smith.

As for who decides where it goes from here, last we heard Ron Howard and Universal were behind the project. JMS confirms that they’re still behind it saying, “We're looking to do new things with effects, and of course with Ron Howard involved it's always going to be character-oriented, so we combine what you can do with effects these days with a really strong character story.”
Go forth, and kill!
