“Nightflyers”While everyone is still reeling from the season finale of “Game of Thrones,” the creator of the megahit, George R.R. Martin, is quietly setting up another one of his works for a small-screen adaptation. The bearded author is in the process of bringing his novella “Nightflyers” to SyFy. The pilot will follow a telepath and a group of scientists as they journey into space to seek the help of aliens on the eve of Earth’s destruction. These extraterrestrials, however, don’t come in peace; the scientists soon realize the beings may be wreaking havoc on the galaxy. The project, which currently does not have any actors attached, is looking to fill its roster with the help of Zane/Pillsbury Casting. Production on the pilot is anticipated to start sometime in the late fall around November. Filming is likely to go international in Ireland for the short pilot shoot.
“Locke & Key”Halloween may come only once a year, but for one family, the hauntings are never-ending. Hulu has recently picked up the pilot “Locke & Key.”
