Syfy has ordered a pilot for George R. R. Martin's Nightflyers novella

We've got some good news for all of you George R. R. Martin fans out there! It's been confirmed that Syfy has ordered a pilot episode for the relentless-killing-machine of an author's NIGHTFLYERS novella.

Martin's 1980 story NIGHTFLYERS tells the story of eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who, hoping to make contact with alien life, embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer, a ship with a small, tight-knit crew and a reclusive captain. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place, they start to question each other — and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.

The pilot episode for NIGHTFLYERS has been written by Jeff Buhler, and will see its executive-production headed up by participants Gene Klein, David Bartis, Doug Linman, Alison Rosenweig, Michael Gaeta, Lloyd Ivan Miller, and Alice P. Neuhauser. Additionally, Robert Jaffe, who penned the 1987 film based on the novel, is also attached as a producer on the project. Meanwhile, vengeful sea captain look-alike, Martin,, who's busy orchestrating several GAME OF THRONES spinoff ideas, will not be a part of the NIGHTFLYERS endevour.

Executive vice president of scripted development for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, Bill McGoldrick voiced his enthusiasm about the horror-inspired property by saying, “We are looking forward to diving deeper into George R. R. Martin’s chilling world of Nightflyers. The script that Jeff delivered encapsulates this classic sci-fi horror story and adapts it to a platform where we can truly explore the depths of madness.”

Season 7 of George R. R. Martin's GAME OF THRONES begins on July 16, 2017 on HBO.

Extra Tidbit: George R. R. Martin knows who your favorite Game of Thrones character is, and he's going to kill them just so he can enjoy the look of horror on your face.
