It appears to lean more toward the sci-fi side of the fence than pure horror, but considering its pedigree, which includes the team who wrote and directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention AMC’s acquisition of “Thunderstruck”, a new series about powerful and enigmatic alien entities that begin appearing all over the world.
Deadline tells us that “Thunderstruck” is an hour-long UFO project from feature writing/directing duo Paul Boardman and Scott Derrickson (the aforementioned Emily Rose) and former “Battlestar Galactica” executive producer David Eick. Boardman and Derrickson will write the drama, Boardman and Derrickson will executive produce with Eick, and Derrickson is set to direct.
As for those “entities”, after one shows up in the town of Great Falls, Montana, the local citizens must grapple with the dramatic effects and growing mystery of repeated visitations.
Like we said, we’re not entirely sure how Dread worthy this will be, but we love both UFO tales and just about everything on AMC so we’ll keep tabs on “Thunderstruck” and keep you posted on upcoming developments.
