Deadline reports Oni Press’ Ghost Projekt is now being developed as a series over at NBC. The property, created by Joe Harris originally landed at SyFy in 2011. Now, John Glenn and Troll Hunter‘s André Øvredal are penning an adaptation with Øvredal expected to direct the pilot.
The plot crunch goes like this: Russia is often remembered from the shadow cast during the Cold War-era when every stranger was a spy, but now that the Cold War is long over, some things left behind from that era may not stay lost. An abandoned Soviet research facility somewhere in Siberia has been home to a strange and dangerous weapon that is now in the hands of thieves claiming it for their own.
U.S. weapons inspector Will Haley has been assigned to find out what dangers the weapon poses and with the help of Russian agent Anya Romanova they will find the answers, but it will be far from easy.
