Burns previously attempted to adapt Lost in Space into a movie for NBC, but when the series' original star, Jonathan Harris, died, the project didn't move forward. Warner Bros. also worked on a reboot but the pilot never went to series. The 1998 movie adaptation debuted at No. 1 at the box office and went on to gross $136 million worldwide.
