HBO developing TV sci-fi drama series based on the 1998 movie 'Sphere'
HBO is reportedly developing a TV series based on the 1998 movie "Sphere," based on a novel by the late writer, director Michael Crichton, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Crichton has given us both blockbusters and box office bombs, from "Jurassic Park" and "Rising Sun" to "Congo" and "Timeline." One of his underappreciated works was a 1998 movie called "Sphere," starring Dustin Hoffman, Sharon Stone, Samuel L. Jackson, Liev Schreiber and Peter Coyote. Where did the crew of the original mission find the sphere and what's its purpose? Hopefully however, this attempt will prove to be better than that adaptation, which was — and let's not mince words – dreadful.space.com
