Planet 15 Release Being Pushed Back

According to producer Susan Ling said today it is unfortunate but due to some recent firings in the 3D animation department the production is being pushed back to a 2016 release.  She went on to say that the production team is looking at new ways of creating the space battle scenes and are even exploring such options like live action models rather than computer generated ones.

What is Planet 15?

There seems to be some confusion about what planet 15 is.  Planet 15 is a live action series based on the 12 comic books of the same name written by Clint Adam Smyth.  It is being adapted for screen by director Matt Sparrow and writer Lawrence Ling.  The series starts at the beginning of episode 9 (If Lucas can start on episode 4 we can start on episode 9) in a heated battle between 2  Hakian Sub Destroyers™ and the crew of the Allegiance™ helmed by Captain John Mac™ and his ragtag crew.

Issue #2 Planet 15 Comic Book Cover Leaked to public.

It was discovered that one of the fan sites posted an unauthorized pre posting of the cover for issue #2 of the newly revamped comic book Planet 15.  Producer Susan Ling was un-happy, but she is also quoted as saying, “well it is out there now, lets get some reaction from the fans.”  The cover was created by Paul Limgenco under the art direction of series creator Clint Adam Smyth.  We think it looks great!  Can hardly wait to see the entire issue!

R.I.P. Clive Olden, you will be truly missed.

Fans of Planet 15 are in shock today over news that the actor who plays Captain John Mac actor died violently and suddenly last night as his motorcycle hit a semi trailer truck at high velocity.  Actor Clive Olden the actor who played the role was to have beed seen driving recklessly along the Don Valley Parkway on his Motorcycle at speeds at over 160 KPH (100 MPH) .  Everyone involved with the production is in shock at the news and is wondering what will happen to the production.  Producer Susan Ling made a official statement this morning wishing his family and friends condolences and that his loss is a deeply felt tragedy but however, “the show must go on and they will soon be looking for his replacement, as even if this is a major set back to the production, his role will have to be filled due to contractual obligations.” .

Police at this time are refusing to comment on if drugs or alcohol were involved with the accident.

This makes us wonder,  who is big enough to fill his shoes and interplanetary military jacket?  Will the show go on?  We will have to wait and see…
