Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Syfy is pushing forward with Ghost Projekt, an adaptation of the Oni Press comic announced in July at Comic-Con International.
Created by Joe Harris and Steve Rolston, the 2010 supernatural thriller follows a female Russian agent and a male U.S. weapons inspector who cross paths while investigating an abandoned Soviet research facility in Siberia, where a deadly force has been unleashed.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ghost Projekt is one of three new dramas added to the cable network’s development slate. Although there were few details at the time of the original announcement, the trade paper now reports the project, from CBS Studios, boasts Brett Matthews (Supernatural) as a writer and executive producer. Andy Bourne and Eric Gitter also serve as executive producers.
The other two dramas are Seeing Things, about a cop who becomes a ghost after his violent death and the socially awkward man who can see him, and an untitled sci-fi series from Robert H. Wolfe (Alphas) in which “a volatile mix of humans and trans-humans lead the Starship Defender on an expedition in search of lost worlds requiring law and order.”
Ghost Projekt is the second Oni Press project in the pipeline at Syfy. The publisher revealed at Comic-Con that the network is looking to transform Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt’s supernatural Western The Sixth Gun into a miniseries.
