Nightflyers - George R.R. Martin Adaption Ordered to Series by Syfy



George R.R. Martin has another drama coming to the small screen.

Syfy is near a deal to pick up the Game of Thrones creator's Nightflyers to series. Representatives from the NBCUniversal-owned cable network and producers Universal Cable Productions declined comment as multiple deals are still in the works. Among them: Universal Cable Productions is negotiating with Netflix for a second window domestic and first window international streaming deal.

Nightflyers, picked up to pilot in June after being put in development in May, is based on Martin's 1980 novella and the 1987 film of the same name. It is set in the future on the eve of Earth's destruction and follows a crew of explorers who journey on the most advanced ship in the galaxy, The Nightflyer, to intercept a mysterious alien spacecraft that might hold the key to their survival. As the crew nears their destination, they discover that the ship’s artificial intelligence and never-seen captain may be steering them into deadly and unspeakable horrors deep in the dark reaches of space. Production on the pilot is already underway; casting has not yet been determined.

Jeff Buhler (Jacob's Ladder) penned the script and executive produces the UCP drama alongside Gene Klein (Suits), David Bartis (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) and Doug Liman (Suits) of Hypnotic; Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta (Jacob's Ladder) of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; and Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions. Robert Jaffe, who penned the feature film based on Martin's novel, is set as a producer. Martin is not involved, given his overall deal with HBO, where he's currently co-writing two of the four potential Game of Thrones follow-ups that are in the works. Dan Cerone (The Blacklist, The Mentalist) will serve as showrunner and Mike Cahill (Another Earth and Syfy's The Magicians pilot) will helm the first installment.

The cabler has passed on The Machine, Haunted and Prototype, with the fate of Tremors still to be determined.

Nightflyers, picked up to pilot by Syfy in June, is on track for a straight-to-series order. I hear that SyFy and Universal Cable Prods., which produces the project, are in negotiations with Netflix for the streaming network to come on board the supernatural thriller based on the novella by Game Of Thrones’ George R.R. Martin and the 1987 film. Terms of the agreement are still being hammered out but I hear it would likely involve Netflix getting international distribution and second window domestically and possibly co-producing the series.

Jeff Buhler wrote the adaptation of Nightflyers, which follows a group of misfit scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small tight-knit crew and a reclusive captain — in the hope of making contact with alien life. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other — and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
