Amazon Studios has partnered with Paramount Television to develop a series based on the 1997 movie Event Horizon. The original film was directed by Paul W. S. Anderson and written by Philip Eisner.
The movie followed the ship of the same name that disappeared after testing an experimental gravity drive capable of creating an artificial black hole that was meant to allow the ship to travel to distant points in the galaxy. A rescue crew and the gravity drive’s inventor are sent to investigate after the ship mysteriously reappears, only to discover that the ship traveled to a hellish dimension outside of the known universe that infects the ship with a sinister sentience, leading to multiple deaths.
Adam Wingard, director of Blair Witch, Death Note, and Godzilla vs. King Kong, is set to executive produce and direct.
