And if he doesn't say anything I don't think we should panic until 2018. Then we just go nutz!
The original announcement was in 2014 for the script to be written in 2015 and go into production in 2016 (Hey, you pay me to keep track of this stuff, right? You don't? Hmmmm...). Last year when asked he said he was concentrating on building 'street cred' for Studio JMS. I can't be sure but I'd think that that sort of building would require projects being made and though we've seen a number of projects announced, there's really nothing new in front of the cameras (that we know of) yet.

But we'll see what he might say at the con. You know your roving reporter will let you know as soon as she can get back to a computer. Updates always get posted here first, of course (typos and all!).

Great Jan. I was trying to calm the masses and now you've just opened the flood gates. Okay folks, I guess 2017 is the year to go nutz.

Cheers Jan! Always good to get the news first hand via a reputable JMS nut.

We can pay you in Spoo if you want?

Oh - it's only fair to warn you that I gave up my only question to ask about the movie last year. Not gonna happen this year. I've got some questions chosen already and will decide on the day which (if any) to ask.

I prefer to think of myself as 'moderate to severely' obsessed, thankyouverymuch.

Do you mean you expect he will announce something about the movie so you won't have to ask?

Dunno if he will or not. It's just not a priority for me to ask about this year, that's all.
