A TV Serie of Asimov´s Foundation on the way!
This is the best news in a long time. They were initially thinking of doing a movie of this great Sci Fi Story (The Best Sci Fi Story Ever?) But are now turning it into a TV serie. Maybe that is the way to go as the TV budget are constantly increasing and the effects are looking better than before. Because all these books might be too hard to capture in a movie (and would be to long). We keep our fingers crossed.
Reported via iO9 as of below:
It looks like HBO is teaming up with Interstellar writer and Person Of Interest showrunner Jonathan Nolan to adapt the highly revered and beloved Foundation books into a TV series. Wow.
The Wrap is reporting that Jonathan Nolan will be working with HBO for yet another series. The Interstellar writer is currently working on a TV adaptation of Westworld for HBO, and now he has allegedly turned his attention towards the groundbreaking work of Isaac Asimov’sFoundation.
This is happy news, as Foundation was once set to be adapted into a film by Roland Emmerich.But Foundation is a pretty seminal work of science fiction, so needless to say we’re pretty nervous. HBO will be teaming up with Warner Bros. TV in hopes of producing a series. No word on how many episodes this “series” will contain or if it will be set up as a miniseries, however the books have enough material to last a very long time.
The series is set on a remote planet called Terminus where mathematician and psychologist, Hari Seldon was exiled due to his ability to predict the crumbling of the Galactic Empire. On Terminus, a group do artists, academics and engineers attempt to start a new society and the series just jettisons off from there. It’s really so much more than just this description and the series jumps ahead as Terminus grows and expands.
