The Walking Dead network AMC wants more horror

AMC commissions adaptation of The Terror

Following the success of The Walking Dead, cable network AMC have commissioned another horror series: an adaptation of Dan Simmons’ novel The Terror.

Deadline is reporting that the pilot will be produced by Ridley Scott’s Scott Free productions and will be written by David Kajganich, who is also adapting Stephen King’s The Stand for Warner Bros.

According to the site: “The Terror is set in 1847 when the crew of a Royal Naval expedition to find the Arctic’s treacherous Northwest Passage discovers instead a monstrous predator– a cunning and vicious Gothic horror that stalks the ships in a desperate game of survival, the consequences of which could endanger the region and its native people forever.”
