FX is preparing their lineup for next year and apparently are attempting to add an Alex Garland original to their repertoire. The writer/director inked a deal with FX in 2017 to create new television projects for the channel the first of which he is set to begin work on this year:
“The next project, provided it happens, hopefully, we’re gonna shoot it later this year, and it’s an eight-part television series for FX. It’s a sort of science fiction, but it’s a much more technology-based sci-fi whereas Annihilation is a more hallucinogenic form of sci-fi and more fantastical form of sci-fi. This is slightly more comon in projects I’ve worked on like Ex Machina or Never Let Me Go, which are taking something about our world now- not our world in the future, but or oworld as it is right now – and then drawing sort of inferences and conclusions from it.”
Garland has kept quiet on the exact details of the show and but did suggest that it’s all already written and that “my plan at the moment is to direct the eight episodes but for practical reasons that might not be possible.”
Garland’s most recent work is Annihilation which centers around a group of female scientist on a journey through the a world called The Shimmer and is the fllow-up film to Ex Machina. The film stars Jennifer Jason leigh, Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, and Oscar Isaac and is set for theatrical release on Feburary 23rd. The trailer for the film can be seen below.
