Syfy George RR Martin Series Nightflyers Reveals Cast

However, when violent and inexplicable events begin befalling the small crew of the spaceship Nightflyer, they realize the journey will be far more unsafe than the every imagined.

Variety reports that Nightflyers, GRRM's 1985 short story, has been picked up by the cable channel Syfy, which, in the United Kingdom at least, is home to endless Buffy re-runs and other assorted trash. The cast includes Boardwalk Empire star Gretchen Mol, The Night Shift's Eoin Macken, and more.

After rumors floating around for the better part of a year and an excited blog update from George R.R. Martin himself, Syfy has officially picked up the Nightflyers series. The network revealed they were developing the novella as a series back in May.

Syfy cousin Universal Cable Productions will produce the show, with Netflix a coproducer and worldwide rights holder.

Daniel Cerone, showrunner of the short-lived Constantine on NBC, will serve as the Nightflyers showrunner.

U.S. cable channel Syfy has announced that it has given the green light to the show, with Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire), Eoin Macken (The Night Shift), David Ajala (Fast & Furious 6) and Brían F O'Byrne (Love/Hate) set to star and writer Martin among the executive producers. Martin will also executive produce, along with Gene Klein, David Bartis, and Doug Liman of Hypnotic. Andrew McCarthy (the one from all of those teen movies in the "80s) will be a producer-director, while Another Earth's Mike Cahill will direct the pilot". Martin's novella, which had previously been adapted into a feature film in 1987 to a generally negative reaction, will be produced by Syfy's production arm Universal Cable Productions.

Production will take place in Ireland, with the Irish government supporting it through its Culture, Heritage and Gaeltacht and the Irish Film Board.
