Award-winning Chinese novels – The Three-Body Problem, The Dark Forest, and Death’s End, written by Liu Cixin, will have an English language adaptation. The books tell the story of humans first contact with an alien civilization.
“Liu Cixin’s trilogy is the most ambitious science-fiction series we’ve read, taking readers on a journey from the 1960s until the end of time, from life on our pale blue dot to the distant fringes of the universe,” David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the creators and executive producers of television’s hit medieval fantasy series Game of Thrones, said in a statement
“I set out to tell a story that transcends time and the confines of nations, cultures and races; one that compels us to consider the fate of humankind as a whole,” Liu said in a statement.
No date or casting was announced for the project which is the first production deal between Benioff, Weiss and Netflix that was announced a year ago.
