Event Horizon TV Series in Development at Amazon
Variety reports that a TV adaptation of the cult sci-fi horror
movie Event Horizon is in development at Amazon with Paramount
Adam Wingard (The Guest, You're Next, the upcoming Godzilla vs
Kong) will executive produce the series, and the outlet reports
may direct. Original producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin
will executive produce alongside Jeremy Platt.
Directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, Event Horizon debuted in
theaters in 1997 as a box office bomb and a critical flop. In
that time, the film has gained favor with fans around the world
and become a cult film. Boasting an ensemble cast by today's
standards, the original film starred Laurence Fishburne, Sam
Neill, Kathleen Quinlan, Joely Richardson, Richard T. Jones,
Jason Isaacs and Sean Pertwee.
The year is 2047. Years earlier, the pioneering research vessel
Event Horizon vanished without a trace. Now a signal from it
has been detected, and the United States Aerospace Command
responds. Hurtling toward the signal's source are a fearless
captain (Fishburne), his elite crew and the lost ship's
designer (Neill). Their mission: find and salvage the
state-of-the-art spacecraft. What they find is state-of-the-art
interstellar terror. What they must salvage are their own lives,
because someone or something is ready to ensnare them in a new
dimension of unimaginable fear.
This marks yet another collaboration between Paramount
Television and Amazon previously collaborated on the hit Tom
Clancy's Jack Ryan.
