Beverly Hills-based Ringleader Studios (The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes) has acquired rights to adapt Colin Wilson’s 1976 novel “The Space Vampires” for television.
Deadline reports that the intergalactic sci-fi tale previously got the feature film treatment in Tobe Hooper’s 1985 pic Lifeforce, starring Steve Railsback, Patrick Stewart, and Mathilda May.
Ringleader is plotting a small-screen episodic series, also titled “Lifeforce,” as well as a graphic novel, video game, and additional media tie-ins.
“The plot follows a group of astronauts who discover a derelict spaceship and return to Earth with three humanoid aliens that unleash a life-sucking plague upon humanity.“
