Over the weekend at the SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON J. Michael Straczynsk creater of Babylon 5 said that "WB came to him as they do periodically wanting to do something with B5. They asked if he wanted to do a feature film but JMS declined mainly because he can't yet picture structuring a B5 movie "as long as Andreas and Rick insist on staying dead." Maybe in a year or two he'll be able to but right now he can't do something big. What JMS suggested was a bunch of short films 'little mini-movies, an anthology show set in the Babylon 5 universe. They said, "Okay." There's a network already interested in carrying them but they're also planned for direct to DVD. This will be "Babylon 5: The Lost Tales", a lot of small stories that never made it into the series that he's rediscovered notes for. And JMS wants no interference, complete creative support "in writing". They said, "Okay." And JMS wants to direct them. They said, "Okay." The first will be three individual stories about three of the main characters (to be determined). The plan is to shoot in September, post-production Oct.-Dec. and they'll probably come out the second quarter of 2007."
