When a mysterious force strikes a small town, everyone in utero at the time is born with extraordinary powers. As they grow from childhood to adulthood, they bring all the rivalries and alliances of childhood as they grow into a force that may one day change the world forever.

This must be the first time I've read a synopsis of Rising Stars and thought of John Wyndham's 'The Midwich Cuckoos'. Similarities end after the 'special babies' thing... but yeah, that just struck me out of nowhere.

JMS posted on Twitter that the first draft of the script is in:



Intellectually I know that MGM for feature films wouldn't have the same numbskulls that were there when he did 'Jeremiah', I still find myself muttering 'MGM, please don't meddle!' over and over.

Cool stuff. I guess the 'Trilogy' aspect really depends on the success of the first film.

Being developed by MGM as a feature (and a potential franchise) not TV; latest draft went in last week, hoping for production order soon.

GREAT NEWS!!!!! Soon I will have to dig out all of the comics and read them again. My guess is we might see it in 2019, though I have a feeling there will be a lot of movies pushing for a 2020 release. I don't know. If I was making a movie I think I would want it to come out in 2020. LOL

This is cool. With Sense8 being pretty much done, I am now eager to see what JMS moves forward with.
