SyFy Adapts Hugo Winner Spin for Miniseries

Spin(1stEd)

SyFy, has announced its plans to adapt Robert Charles Wilson’s Hugo Award winning science fiction novel Spin into a six hour miniseries.

Spin won the prestigious Hugo Award in 2006 and is the first of a trilogy whose other titles include Axis and Vortex.

The widely acclaimed novel centres on a young scientist trying to save humanity from the impending apocalypse of a mysterious, impenetrable cloud that has enveloped the entire Earth, blacking out the stars.

Jim Uhls, screenwriter for films such as Fight Club and Jumper has been chosen to adapt the book into and although we do not have a release date, the production itself is rather impressive.

Universal Cable Productions will produce the project, along with Rob Morrow’s Bits and Pieces Picture Company and Olympus Picture’s Leslie Urdang.

Rob Morrow’s credits include such shows as Northern Exposure and Leslie Urdang has worked on films such as Rabbit Hole and Thanks for Sharing starring Mark Ruffalo.

UPC has worked on many projects that will certainly be familiar to Geek Syndicate readers, such as Battlestar Galactica, Warehouse 13 and the current television adaptation of 12 Monkeys.

Geek Syndicate will be sure to bring you further updates on the project as we get them.
