Or small screen? These days, who knows? Either way: biiiiiiig news: God bless Mike Flanagan. As if The Midnight Club TV series wasn't enough, the man is set to direct The Season of Passage for Universal Studios. Aye carumba. Says Deadline:
In a competitive situation we hear, Universal has snapped up a feature pitch from Intrepid Pictures based on the 1993 Christopher Pike novel The Season of Passage, a science fiction horror novel set on Mars.
The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor creator Mike Flanagan will co-write the screenplay with James Flanagan, with the former set to direct and produce along with Intrepid Pictures producing partner Trevor Macy. Plot details are being kept secret; however, the Season of Passage centers around celebrity Dr. Lauren Wagner who was involved in a manned expedition to Mars. The whole world admired and respected her. But Lauren knew fear. Inside―voices entreating her to love them. Outside―the mystery of the missing group that had gone before her. The dead group. But were they simply dead? Or something else? (Source)
