Reboot Based On 1997 Movie

Amazon has teamed with Paramount on a new, rebooted Event Horizon TV series that would be exclusive to Amazon Prime Video.

Variety reported that a series adaptation of the 1997 sci-fi horror film Event Horizon is currently in the works.

After receiving criticism that the 1997 film failed to deliver on the horror front, the movie actually became a cult hit. This new adaptation is set to be executive produced and directed by Adam Wingard (Godzilla Vs. Kong).

There’s not much other information on the series, so no solid details on the plot but in the original (directed by Paul W. S. Anderson and written by Philip Eisner), the film tells the story of a spaceship that mysteriously disappears on its maiden voyage after testing a gravity drive capable of creating artificial black holes. A rescue crew captained by Lawrence Fishbourne and Sam Neill (the gravity drive’s creator) is sent to investigate following its sudden reappearance, only to discover the ship travelled to a sinister dimension.

Yesterday, LMO reported that Scream Factory is bringing back the movie in a new Blu-Ray release, but for now, we’ll leave you with the deleted scenes that surfaced in 2013, the series reboot could certainly go some way to exploring the holes seen in the original –
