THE Hollywood star is teaming with Graham King, producer of Argo, and Todd Phillips, of The Hangover triology, to bring Dan Simmons’s Hyperion to SyFy as a major event series.
Set on the eve of Armageddon with an entire galaxy at war, Hyperion, published in 1989, is the story of seven pilgrims who embark on a voyage to seek the answers to the riddles of their lives. Each carries a desperate hope and a terrible secret, while one may hold the fate of humanity in his hands.
A novel that invites reflection on the nature of man and his soul within the context of a 28th century world, Hyperion is the first installment in a four-volume saga called The Hyperion Cantos. In it, Dan Simmons creates a beautiful futuristic world filled with eccentric characters that will have no trouble filling out a television series.
Bradley Cooper returns to the small screen
Bradley Cooper, star of American Sniper and The Hangover, is returning to his roots, the medium he began in and which propelled him to stardom. In 1999, he made his first television appearance in an episode of Sex and the City, followed two years later by his breakthrough as Will Tippin in Alias.
Since 2009 and his turn on Nip/Tuck, Bradley Cooper hadn’t graced the small screen with his presence, until this year. Besides his participation in Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which premieres July 31 on Netflix, he is also producing Limitless, a series based on his film of the same name. In fact, he will reprise his role as Eddie Mora on the CBS drama premiering September 22.
The actor is by no means giving up on the big screen though. Already this year he starred alongside Rachel McAdams and Emma Stone in Aloha, and this October he can be found starring in Adam Jones. 2016 will bring audiences Joy, his latest collaboration with David O. Russell and Jennifer Lawrence.
