In case you have forgotten the original film, here’s the synopsis provided by Variety:
The titled [Event Horizon] referred to a spaceship that disappeared after testing an experimental gravity drive capable of creating an artificial black hole that was meant to allow the ship to travel to distant points in the galaxy. A rescue crew and the gravity drive’s inventor are sent to investigate after the ship mysteriously reappears, only to discover that the ship traveled to a hellish dimension outside of the known universe that infects it with a sinister sentience, leading to multiple deaths.
The original film was directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil) and written by Philip Eisner (Mutant Chronicles). Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix) starred as the captain of the crew with Sam Neil (Jurassic Park) as the gravity drive inventor. No word yet as to when production will start, who will star, and whether this series will be a continuation or a reboot. As a fan of the original film, this writer will be keeping an ear out for any new information Amazon and Paramount Television releases in the future.
