Hammer and Legendary team for Quatermass movie

Hammer Films and Legendary Pictures are taming for a feature film adaptation of the classic British sci-fi property Quatermass, which is being scripted by David Farr (The Night Manager).

Quatermass was created by writer Nigel Kneale and follows Professor Bernard Quatermass, a scientist heading up the British Experimental Rocket Group who battles to save humanity from extraterrestrial threats.

The character first appeared in a trio of BBC sci-fi serials in the 1950s, which are regarded as a precursor to Doctor Who. Hammer was also responsible for adapting the series for the big screen, releasing The Quatermass Xperiment, Quatermass 2 and Quatermass and the Pit.

The new film is being produced by Hammer’s Simon Oakes, who has been looking to revive the property since 2012.
