AMC Developing The Terror Based on the Novel By Dan Simmons


Exciting news for those who have read, and are fans of, the Dan Simmons novel “The Terror.”  Deadline reports AMC is working with Scott Free TV to bring the tale to the small screen.

The book, published in 2007, will be adapted by David Kajganich.  He previously penned The Invasion and Blood Creek.  He, as of late, has also been the go-to guy for King adaptations.  He scripted new incarnations of It, Pet Sematary and The Stand.  Recently, he was tapped to script the Creature from the Black Lagoon remake.

Set in the mid-1800s, The Terror concerns the ships HMS Erebus and the HMS Terror and their respective crew.  Caught in the Arctic, they fight starvation and freezing temperatures while fighting off a monster.
