Simmons’ <i>The Terror</i> Heads to AMC

Fans of Dan Simmons are in luck, because his epic novel The Terror is getting adapted for the small screen. AMC is developing a drama series based on the 2007 novel that’s being written by The Invasion screenwriter David Kajganich.

Deadline has the news, and also has a brief synopsis for the project. The site writes, “The Terror is set in 1847 when the crew of a Royal Naval expedition to find the Arctic’s treacherous Northwest Passage discovers instead a monstrous predator —  a cunning and vicious Gothic horror that stalks the ships in a desperate game of survival, the consequences of which could endanger the region and its native people forever.”

Sounds like a solid addition to a drama lineup that already includes the likes of The Walking Dead, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. This is venturing off in a more genre territory, but that’s an exciting space for AMC to continue to explore. Hopefully AMC follows HBO’s route in Game of Thrones and shoots on location instead of using a green screen.

Meanwhile, Deadline also writes that Kajgnich is working on an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand for Warner Bros. That project is currently without a director, but if Kajgnich turns in a solid draft, that might change soon. For now, consider us thrilled about this The Terror news.
