Parker Posey has been cast as the role of Dr. Smith, Dr. Zachary Smith played by Jonathan Harris in the original 60s show, for the Lost In Space Netflix remake.

PARKER POSEY TO PLAY DR. SMITH IN LOST IN SPACE 2018 REMAKE

The original show followed the Robinson family, who set off on a five-year mission to study a far away planet. Their plans changed when the scheming Dr. Smith sabotaged their flight, and the Robinsons, their pilot Don West, Dr. Smith, and their trusty robot end up, as the title suggests, lost in space, going from planet to planet searching for earth.

The gender flip will be an interesting turn, and has a lot of fans talking about the promise of the upcoming Netflix series. Posey has always played quirky characters in films such as Party GirlDazed and Confused and Mascots. She joins Molly Parker and Toby Stephens who play parents Maureen and John Robinson, as well as Maxwell Jenkins and Taylor Russell as children Will and Judy.

Lost In Space will debut sometime in 2018 on the streaming site. Check out the original intro from the 60s to get excited for the remake.
