Murder aboard the International Space Station? It's not a previously unknown Agatha Christie novel, but the question behind Eureka writer Johanna Stokes' Station, now being adapted into a movie by the people behind I, Robot.
Created and written by Stokes, Station, originally published as a four-issue comic mini-series last year, gives you the ultimate "locked room" mystery when an astronaut ends up dead on the ISS... but was it an accident or murder? The movie rights have been picked up by CBS Films, and I, Robot scripter Jeff Vintar and producer Laurence Mark are already attached. Mark explains why:
This feels like a Hitchcock movie in a James Cameron setting, and Jeff is ideally suited to adapt this graphic novel.
No director or stars are attached yet.
