J. Michael Straczynski announced at last month's Comic-Con that he intends to reboot his Babylon 5 TV series with a feature film.

TVWise reports that JMS said he plans to have the script completed for the Babylon 5 movie by the end of 2015, which would then see production start in 2016.

No specifics are known in regards to the plot, but JMS did state he would like to use the cast members from the original series in the rebooted Babylon 5 movie in new roles.

"I’d love to see Bruce [Boxleitner] as the President of the Earth Alliance," he said.

It's said JMS is hoping Warner Bros. will be involved with the movie, as WB was involved with the TV series, but if WB doesn't wish to be, JMS does own the rights to Babylon 5; so he can do the film under his Studio JMS banner on a $80 – $100 million budget.
