The big budget series for Syfy in the United States is being produced by NBC Universal and Universal Cable Productions, along with Wild Atlantic Pictures.
The show is set aboard the titular spaceship Nightflyer, although it seems like its mission is slightly different in the show compared to the books - instead of making first contact, the Nightflyer is actually the last hope of a dying humanity, exploring beyond Earth's reach in the hopes of finding the key to survival.
Could this newly discovered shipwreck contain 200 tonnes of gold?
A separate 10 percent would be invested into tourism projects on Ulleungdo Island, including a museum centered around the ship. Company spokesman Park Seong-jin said his company will file a request for the ship's salvage right later this week.
Martin himself has not been heavily involved in the adaptation of this story for Netflix, he is rather busy working on up to four spin-off series for Game of Thrones, whilst supposedly finishing the long-awaited next installment of his A Song of Ice and Fire series called The Winds of Winter.
Syfy has posted several brief teasers highlighting the horrors contained on the Nightflyer but has yet to release a full-length trailer.
The eight-person crew at the center of Nightflyers includes Gretchen Mol as Dr. Agatha Matheson, Eoin Macken as Karl D'Branin, David Ajala as Roy Eris, Sam Strike as Thale, Maya Eshet as Lommie, Angus Sampson as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith as Melantha Jhirl, and Brian F. O'Byrne as Auggie.
