George R.R. Martin's "Nightflyers"

The space saga "Nightflyers", based on "Game of Thrones" author George R.R. Martin’s 1980 "Analog" magazine novella and 1987 film of the same name, has been greenlit for a TV pilot, to be shot in Ireland by director Mike Cahill, starring Gretchen Mol for Syfy:

"...'Nightflyers' follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful 'telepath' who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard 'The Nightflyer' – a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain — in the hope of making contact with alien life.

"But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other — and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought..."

Netflix will co-produce and have first-run rights to the potential series outside of North America.
