The Blake’s 7 remake is one step closer to existing, thanks to cable network Syfy, which is developing the reboot…

Around a month ago, we heard that the latest in a number of attempts to bring Terry Nation’s cult UK sci-fi back to the small screen had inched forward, with a collaboration between Casino Royale and Green Lantern director Martin Campbell, and US TV studio Georgeville.

Now things have moved another step closer, as cable network Syfy has snapped up a script-to-series commitment for the reboot, meaning that if they’re keen on Joe Pokaski’s script, they’ll order a 13-episode run.

The last time the Blake's 7 reboot was raised on the site, we had the distinct impression that many of you weren’t keen to see a US-produced take on Nation’s renegade space fugitives. Does Syfy stepping on board go any way to quell concerns about the proposed new flight of the Liberator?
