Casino Royale filmmaker Martin Campbell is set to direct a reboot of cult British sci-fi Tv show Blake's 7.

The hit Bbc series, about a band of renegades fighting criminals in the future, originally ran in the U.K. from 1978 to 1981 and aired in 40 other countries around the world.

Bosses at FremantleMedia have now announced they are planning to bring the show back for 13 episodes, penned by Heroes writer Joe Pokaski, which will air on the Syfy network.

FremantleMedia's David Ellender says, "Blake's 7 was such a forward-thinking concept that the show continues to have resonance with audiences today."
