‘Ghost Brigades’ Heads To Syfy

Series is based on John Scalzi’s ‘Old Man’s War’ books


Syfy is launching another science-fiction series with its adaption of John Scalzi’s “Ghost Brigades,” which is based on his “Old Man’s War” books.

Wolfgang Petersen, who helmed such films as “Das Boot” and “Troy,” is spearheading the project along with “Safe House” producer Scott Stuber; Jake Thornton and Ben Lustig (“The Thirst”) will script.

“Ghost Brigades” centers on John Perry, a 75-year-old soldier serving in a long-running war as mankind — who can now transfer consciousness into younger bodies — expands its influence into deep space. Perry quickly finds himself attracted to a mysterious woman while a conspiracy unfolds involving the Ghost Brigades, an elite military force.

Universal Cable Productions, Radiant Productions and Bluegrass Films will produce the project.

“Old Man’s War,” which earned a Hugo Award for best novel after its debut in 2005, was followed by 2006’s “Ghost Brigades,” 2007’s “The Last Colony,” 2008’s “Zoe’s Tale” and 2013’s “The Human Division.”

Paramount Pictures originally optioned Scalzi’s work for a feature film in 2011, with Petersen and Stuber attached, but the project stalled.

Seeking to expand its science-fiction roster, Syfy is aggressively adding new series, including “The Expanse,” “Ascension,” “Clone,” “Olympus,” “12 Monkeys,” “Letter 44,” “Z Nation” and “Ronin.”
