A television series version of the 1997 sci-fi horror film "Event Horizon" is in development at Amazon.
The streamer is teaming up with Paramount Television to adapt the Paul W.S. Anderson movie into a series.
The original was set in 2047 and followed a crew of astronauts investigating the reappearance of the titular spaceship. The crew learns the ship had an experimental engine that opened a rift in the space time continuum and brought hellish horrors home with it.
Variety reports that Adam Wingard will executive produce and direct the series. Wingard previously directed "Blair Witch" and is currently in production on "Godzilla vs. Kong."
"Event Horizon" joins a number of major projects in the works at Amazon, including "Lord of the Rings,""Jack Reacher," and "Wheel of Time."
When the Event Horizon, a spacecraft that vanished years earlier, suddenly reappears, a team is dispatched to investigate the ship. Accompanied by the Event Horizon's creator, William Weir (Sam Neill), the crew of the Lewis and Clark, led by Capt. Miller (Laurence Fishburne), begins to explore the seemingly abandoned vessel. However, it soon becomes evident that something sinister resides in its corridors, and that the horrors that befell the Event Horizon's previous journey are still present. Read More
