Big news for sci-fi fans: acclaimed director Ridley Scott is developing a miniseries that will act as a sequel to "2001: A Space Odyssey."
The series, which will run on the Syfy channel, will be an adaptation of "3001: The Final Odyssey," the last book in Arthur C. Clarke's series.
The Verge quotes a statement from Scott, "I have always been a fan of Clarke’s extraordinary Odyssey series, and certainly Kubrick’s adaptation of 2001. I am thrilled to be part of bringing that legacy to audiences and continuing the great cinematic tradition that this story and its creators deserve."
