‘Hyperion’ to Become SyFy Event Series
Dan Simmons fans, rejoice! Hyperion is receiving the SyFy television treatment, reports SlashFilm.
Simmons’ epic science fiction novel series, which tells the story of a pilgrimage into a time-warped tomb made by seven characters, is aptly suited for an event series adaptation. Bradley Cooper, Graham King, and Todd Phillips will produce the project.
Cooper has expressed interest in adapting Hyperion for years, and in the past has even offered to write the script. Now with his dream becoming a reality, he says, “It is an absolute honor to enter into the world created by Dan Simmons that is arguably one of the greatest works of science fiction, and help realize it for television audiences.”
SyFy is collaborating with the three producers to transfer the Hyperion novels to the small screen. Itamar Moses of Boardwalk Empire is taking on dual roles of writer and co-executive producer.
Will you be watching the adaptation once it hits television? Or do you consider Hyperion unfilmable?
