A new deal between Netflix and 6th & Idaho will bring a “Way Station” adaptation to subscribers. The sci-fi thriller is based on the Hugo Award-Winning novel by Clifford D. Simak, and the story will be adapted into a feature film. If you like to read the original work before seeing the adaptation, you can find the original “Way Station” novel right here on Amazon.
The video streaming service announced that Matt Reeves, Adam Kassan, Rafi Crohn, Adam Massey, and Lincoln Stalmaster will serve as producers on the project. “Way Station” is part of Matt Reeves’ first-look deal with his production company, 6th & Idaho, and Netflix. The company is also working on “Animal Farm,” “Button Man,” “Idol,” and “Recursion.”
The official logline for the movie reads, “For more than 100 years Enoch Wallace has been the keeper of a Way Station on Earth for intergalactic alien travelers 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.”
Over the past few weeks, Netflix announced a new deal with Millie Bobby Brown and her sister Paige Brown to bring “A Time Lost” to Netflix, and a new multi-year overall deal with “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins. The streaming service is also working on a NASCAR comedy with Kevin James, and an animated-comedy called “Centaurworld,” where a battled warhorse is magically transported to a cute and cuddly fantasy world.
Netflix stopped short of announcing a release date for “Way Station,” and we will have to wait a little longer to find out who is starring in the upcoming film.
