Gareth Edwards’ Monsters is being developed as a TV series

Deadline is reporting that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story director Gareth Edwards’ feature debut Monsters is being developed as a TV series by Vertigo Films and Channel 4.

The 2010 sci-fi horror, which was written and directed by Edwards, starred Scoot McNairy as a photojournalist tasked with escorting his employee’s daughter (Whitney Able) from Mexico to the United States, which involves crossing an “Infected Zone” housing extraterrestrial life forms from a crashed deep space probe. It spawned the 2015 sequel Monsters: Dark Continent.

According to Deadline, Top Boy creator Ronan Bennett will act as showrunner on the series, with Daniel Fajemisin-Duncan and Marlon Smith penning the script. Gareth Edwards is likely to be involved in some capacity, although his exact role is yet to be determined. The producers are also said to be hoping to secure a major U.S. partner, similar to what Channel 4 did with Electric Dreams and Humans.

The 15 Best Monster Movies of the 21st Century
From a certain perspective, monster movies might not seem to be as relevant during monstrous times. But in an age when our fears seem larger than life and the world constantly seems as though it’s on the brink of collapse, the best examples of the genre can almost assume a documentary-like authenticity, reflecting our reality as vividly as vérité ever could.

Exclusive ‘Aftermath’ interview with actor Scoot McNairy

Photo Credit: Collin Stark

Scoot McNairy first came to the attention of most cinephiles with his turn in Monsters. The film, directed by Gareth Edwards, also saw McNairy star alongside his wife, the equally talented Whitney Able. Now he stars this week’s new cinema release, Aftermath.

The film is inspired by a real life plane crash that occurred over Überlingen as a result of a mid-air collision. In Aftermath, Scoot plays Jake, an air traffic controller who finds himself scapegoated for the accident. It’s an incredibly powerful film which also features Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maggie Grace, Kevin Zegers and Glenn Morshower. We caught up with Scoot ahead of the release to find out how he approached the project, where we will see him next, and what it’s like working with an icon like Arnie.

The first film I remember seeing you in was Monsters, which is fantastic. You
