Matt Reeves’ 6th & Idaho has snapped up the rights to adapt Way Station for Netflix.
The Cloverfield director’s production company has a first look deal in place with the streaming giant, with Animal Farm, Button Moon, Idol and Recursion in development.
Now, the company has secured the rights to a sci-fi thriller based on the Hugo Award-Winning novel by Clifford D. Simak.
The story follows Enoch Wallace, who, for more than 100 years, has been the keeper of a Way Station on Earth for intergalactic alien travellers, as they teleport across the universe. But the gifts of knowledge and immortality that his intergalactic guests have bestowed upon him are proving to be a nightmarish burden, for they have opened Enoch’s eyes to humanity’s impending destruction. Still, one final hope remains for the human race.
Reeves will produce the project, alongside Adam Kassan and Rafi Crohn, plus Adam Massey and Lincoln Stalmaster
