HDFILMS, the company that reimagined ABC's V will be reimagining Space:1999. Being a huge fan of the original (especially the first season), I am very excited about this. Especially after reading this:
"Space: 2099's goal is not to attempt to re-tell the specific story of Space: 1999. We are not trying to make some "dark and gritty" version of Space: 1999. There is no reason to re-tell the Space: 1999 story since we already have Space: 1999! However, through our new story and presentation, Space: 2099 hopes to re-kindle and remind fans of those memories of a show from 35 years ago, but more importantly help bring back to all science fiction fans that sense of awe, fear and incredible spectacle that is the unknown, unexplored universe. It is important that we endeavor to bring something new and exciting to the table."

. Doing a Google search for Soace 2099 will also yield a lot of information.
I think that the "sense of awe, fear and incredible spectacle that is the unknown, unexplored universe" is one thing that made Space:1999 special. Unlike Star Trek, they didn't always have nice tidy answers at the end of each episode.
I sure hope this project comes to fruition!
