Netflix Drops A Teaser Trailer For George R. R. Martin Series ‘Nightflyers’
It seems production on Syfy/Netflix co-production ‘Nighflyers‘ is moving along nicely as the streaming giant dropped a little teaser trailer for the upcoming sci-fi series.
Based on George R. R. Martin’s novella, ‘Nighflyers’ is set in the future on the eve of Earth’s destruction. A crew of explorers journey on the most advanced ship in the galaxy, The Nightflyer, to intercept a mysterious alien spacecraft that might hold the key to their survival. As the crew nears their destination, they discover that the ship’s artificial intelligence and never-seen captain may be steering them into deadly and unspeakable horrors deep in the dark reaches of space.
Gretchen Mol (‘Boardwalk Empire’) stars as Dr. Agatha Matheson alongside Eoin Macken (‘The Night Shift’) as Karl D’Branin, David Ajala (‘Fast & Furious 6’) as Roy Eris, Sam Strike (‘EastEnders’) as Thale, Maya Eshet (‘Teen Wolf’) as Lommie, Angus Sampson (‘Fargo’) as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith (‘The Last Ship’) as Melantha Jhirl and Brían F. O’Byrne (‘Million Dollar Baby’) as Auggie.
Jeff Buhler (‘Jacob’s Ladder’) has written the adaptation for television and will executive produce alongside Daniel Cerone (‘The Blacklist’) who will also serve as showrunner. Martin will also executive produce, along with Gene Klein (‘Suits’), David Bartis (‘Suits’) and Doug Liman (‘Suits’, ‘Live. Die. Repeat’) of Hypnotic; Alison Rosenzweig (‘Jacob’s Ladder’, ‘Windtalkers’) and Michael Gaeta (‘Jacob’s Ladder’) of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions. Robert Jaffe (‘Nightflyers’ – 1987 movie) will produce.
The series is currently being shot in Ireland and will air on Netflix outside of the U.S. We don’t have an exact air date for the show yet, although George R.R. Martin did suggest they were aiming for late Summer 2018.
