Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips, Graham King Developing ‘Hyperion’ as Syfy Event Series

Adaptation of Dan Simmons’ bestseller will be written by Itamar Moses

Todd Phillips, Graham King and Bradley Cooper are teaming up to develop an event series adaptation of Dan Simmons’ “Hyperion” for Syfy, the cable network announced Wednesday.

Cooper will executive produce along with King and Phillips.

Itamar Moses will write the screenplay and act as co-executive producer. Universal Cable Productions will serve as the studio and the series will be a production of Graham King‘s GK Films and Cooper and Phillips’ 22nd and Green.

Set on the eve of Armageddon with the entire galaxy at war, “Hyperion” is the story of seven pilgrims who set forth on a voyage to seek the answers to the unsolved riddles of their lives. Each carries a desperate hope and a terrible secret — while one may hold the fate of humanity in his hands.

“It is an absolute honor to enter into the world created by Dan Simmons that is arguably one of the greatest works of science fiction, and help realize it for television audiences,” said Cooper in a statement.

Cooper is represented by CAA. Moses is represented by UTA, and Phillips is represented by CAA and attorney Warren Dern at Sloane, Offer, Weber, & Dern.
