A TV series adaptation of the 1997 film “Event Horizon” is in development at Amazon.
The potential series is from Paramount Television, with “Godzilla vs. Kong” director Adam Wingard is set to direct and executive produce, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
Wingard will executive produce with Jeremy Platt and the film’s producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin. The project expands Amazon’s relationship with Paramount TV, which also produces “Jack Ryan” for the streaming service.
The 1997 film starred Laurence Fishburne and Sam Neill and centered on a rescue mission into deep space after a ship called the Event Horizon mysteriously reappears. The science fiction horror film was directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and written by Philip Eisner. Joely Richardson, Jason Isaacs, Richard T. Jones, Jack Noseworthy, Sean Pertwee and Kathleen Quinlan also starred in the film.
Wingard’s “Godzilla vs. Kong” is scheduled to hit theaters next March. He also directed the “Blair Witch” reboot, “The Guest,” “You’re Next” and “Death Note.”
Variety was first to report the news.
Earlier on Monday, Amazon landed the global rights to Simon Pegg’s U.K. comedy horror series “Truth Seekers.” The series stars Pegg and his frequent collaborator Nick Frost as part-time paranormal investigators who team up to uncover and film ghost sightings across the U.K., sharing their adventures on an online channel for all to see.
