Tony and Ridley Scott are bringing Michael Crichton’s 1969 bestseller “The Andromeda Strain” to A&E, reports Variety.
The brothers will executive produce the miniseries for the network based on Crichton’s story of extraterrestrial germs run amok.
Director-cinematographer Mikael Solomon will direct from a script by Robert Schenkkan (The Quiet American).
The project is set to go into production this summer. David Zucker and Tom Thayer are also executive producing.
