3001: The Final Odyssey is coming!

Having recently moved forward with a mini-series adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s Childhood’s End, Syfy has quickly given a greenlight to the final book in the Odyssey series 3001: The Final Odyssey. The mini-series will come from Ridley Scott’s company Scott Free and be written by Stuart Beattie (Collateral).

3001: The Final Odyssey – One thousand years after the Jupiter mission to explore the mysterious Monolith had been destroyed, after Dave Bowman was transformed into the Star Child, Frank Poole drifted in space, frozen and forgotten, leaving the supercomputer HAL inoperable. But now Poole has returned to life, awakening in a world far different from the one he left behind–and just as the Monolith may be stirring once again.

It took 30 years for Clarke to write the Odyssey series starting in 1968 with 2001: A Space Odyssey and finishing with 3001 in 1997. The first novel was adapted in the same year by Stanley Kurbick with the second novel, 2010: Odyssey Two being adapted in 1984 by Peter Hyams. The third book in the series, 2061: Odyssey Three has never been adapted.

The 3001 adaptation is being done with the blessing and support of both the Kubrick and Clarke estates.
