With Game Of Thrones Nearing An End, Syfy Wants That Fat George R.R. Martin Money

Syfy is looking to bring Martin's Nightflyers straight to series.

Only a short three months ago, Syfy picked up the TV adaptation for George R.R. Martin's early novel Nightflyers. The network is now attempting to bring the show right to series. The Blacklist's Dan Cerone will showrun and The Magicians' Mike Cahill will direct the pilot. SyFy and Universal Cable Productions are also currently negotiating with Netflix to co-produce the series. The adaptation is being written by Jeff Buhler

The 1980 novel is about a group of scientists who begin a space voyage to find a mysterious alien creature, and in the process are victimized by the ship's malevolent computer.

Bill McGoldrick, EVP Scripted Development for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, is excited to be riding Martin's name all the way to the bank, even though Martin has nothing to do with the show because of his HBO exclusivity.

"We are looking forward to diving deeper into George R.R. Martin's chilling world of Nightflyers. The script that Jeff delivered encapsulates this classic sci-fi horror story and adapts it to a platform where we can truly explore the depths of madness."

In the meantime, watch the 1987 feature film adaptation of the book, which currently has a 9% on Rotten Tomatoes.
