Syfy Orders ‘Nightflyers’ by George R.R. Martin

by on

Variety confirms, Syfy is currently negotiating to close a deal for George R.R. Martin’s Nightflyers.

You can read the synopsis of the book below:

Based on Martin’s novella of the same name, the story follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system in the hopes of contacting alien life. They travel aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain. 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. The network revealed they were developing the novella as a series back in May. It was previously adapted into the 1987 film of the same name.

Martin won’t be involved with the decision making as he is currently writing The Winds of Winter. Jeff Buhler is set to write the script while the director is yet to be announced.
