The Cold War-inspired supernatural comic Ghost Projeckt has been kicked around at NBC-Universal for a while now. First it was going to be a Syfy series, and now it's moving over to NBC as a potential drama. So why is it getting network attention?
Deadline just reported that the Oni Press graphic novel is being pushed as a drama for NBC, adapted by John Glenn and Troll Hunter director André Øvredal. Here's the skinny on the comic:
Russia is often remembered from the shadow cast during the Cold War-era when every stranger was a spy, but now that the Cold War is long over, some things left behind from that era may not stay lost. An abandoned Soviet research facility somewhere in Siberia has been home to a strange and dangerous weapon that is now in the hands of thieves claiming it for their own. U.S. weapons inspector Will Haley has been assigned to find out what dangers the weapon poses and with the help of Russian agent Anya Romanova they will find the answers, but it will be far from easy.
Will this series become a reality? It's hard to say, but the idea of ghosts in the Cold War has obviously been good enough to keep around. So color us intrigued.
