Producer Silver is also behind a planned revival of this 1956 classic that gave a sci-fi twist to Shakespeare's "The Tempest" and starred Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis and Leslie Nielsen long before his career tilted toward comedy. It also introduced the world to Robbie the Robot, a machine man who would show in film and television shows for decades.

Michael Straczynski ("The Changeling" is on board.
