Hmm...the original is such a hard act to follow, hope my cynicism is proved groundless though.

I was thinking of posting the same thing. I guess they may pull it off, but it looks to me like a plan by some Stechpalmewald (German "Hollywood") producer wanting to cash in on the earlier series' success.

Hollywood "re-boots" and "re-imaginings" nearly always suck. It will probably be long on CGI and explosions, and short on acting and plot. I could be wrong, but I also will be looking at this with an extremely cynical eye..shake

EDIT: According to that news link, this TV mini-series will be based on one of Lothar Gunther Buchheim's other books, in which the captain does NOT die. The producers also claim to have "the greatest respect" for the original series. We shall see..
