Writer Jeff Buhler penned the adaptation of Nightflyers for television and will continue to executive produce, along with showrunner Daniel Cerone. The series has a long list of additional executive producers, including George R.R. Martin, Gene Klein, David Bartis, Robert Jaffe, and Doug Liman of Hypnotic. Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films will also executive produce, along with Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions. Andrew McCarthy will also be a producer/director on the project, with Mike Cahill helming the pilot.
Martin will not be involved with the series on a day-to-day basis, since he is working on finishing the highly anticipated next book in his Song of Ice and Fire saga, The Winds of Winter. Speaking of Game of Thrones, we can see Nightflyers becoming just as popular as the hit HBO series with stars like Gretchen Mol and Eoin Macken. Mol is best known for her roles in in the films Rounders, Celebrity, 3:10 to Yuma, The Thirteenth Floor and The Notorious Bettie Page. She also appeared as Gillian Darmody in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. Macken is best known for his role in the BBC series Merlin as Sir Gwaine and the NBC series The Night Shift as T.C. Callahan. He also directed several feature films, including Christian Blake in 2008, Dreaming For You, The Inside, and Cold.
