Ridley Scott’s Scott Free production concern is developing Dan Simmons’ 2007 novel “The Terror” as a possible series for AMC.
The book, set in 1847, follows a naval expedition that runs into a bloodthirsty predator while trying to navigate the Arctic’s Northwest Passage.
David Kajganich (the 2007 Body Snatchers remake “The Invasion”) is scripting.
Scott, director of the recent big-screen hit “Prometheus,” has been busy as well producing small-screen sci-fi like the recent miniseries remakes of “The Andromeda Strain” and “Coma.”
AMC is looking for its next “Walking Dead”; the zombie drama is the top-rated hourlong on TV.
