French sci-fi action series "Metal Hurlant Chronicles" has been picked up by the Syfy network, the trades are reporting. The series, which stars Rutger Hauer, Scott Adkins, Michael Jai White, James Marsters, John Rhys-Davies and Kelly Brook, was helmed by Guillaume Lubrano and is based on the "Heavy Metal" comics from the 70s. We first wrote about the show in 2011.
The show is an anthology, each episode is a self-contained science-fiction story taking place in a different world, with different characters played by a different cast and adapted from a story previously published in the Métal Hurlant magazine.
Syfy will launch the series’s first season in April.
