First Westworld... Now Sphere!? We love HBO.
Anyone see the original Sphere adaptation starring Dustin Hoffman, Sharon Stone and Samuel L. Jackson? Well, if you haven't it's worth checking out. If you're more of a reader, the original novel by Michael Crichton is phenomenal as well.
Announced yesterday (Yes, we are late on reporting this, sorry for fucking that up) HBO has assigned the show-runners of Westworld (Lisa Joy, Jonathon Nolan and Team Downey | As well as show-runner Denise Thé) to do a new fresh take on Crichton's original novel.
"The potential series will plunge viewers 1,000 feet into the ocean, where a group of scientists confronts the surreal, beautiful, and deadly mysteries of the universe, only to find the people closest to us may prove to be the most alien."
There is no official word on when production would begin or what the time frame of release is looking like, but we will post (Hopefully not late) as soon as it is released!
