Event Horizon TV series in the works at Amazon
The film flopped upon its release in 1997, but has since become a cult classic.
Amazon are to adapt cult 90s sci-fi film Event Horizon into a TV series.
The streaming site will once again partner with Paramount Television as they did for last year’s Jack Ryan series starring John Krasinski.
Adam Wingard, who’s set to helm the 2020 monster fest Godzilla vs. Kong, is to direct and executive produce the series.
He’ll be joined by two of the film’s original producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin alongside Jeremy Platt.
As the project is still in its very early stages, an official cast or release date has yet to be announced. It’s also not currently clear whether the series will be a direct reboot of the film or serve as a sequel.
Directed by Resident Evil’s Paul W.S Anderson, the original film starred Laurence Fishburne, Jason Isaacs, Sam Neil and Sean Pertwee as the crew of the Lewis and Clark spaceship who are sent to investigate the sudden reappearance of the Event Horizon.
Upon boarding, they discover that the whole crew’s been brutally massacred and all start to have disturbing visions of their own personal fears.
Although it was a flop upon release, standing at just 27% on Rotten Tomatoes, but has since found a strong fanbase on DVD.
