Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 11.24.15] scifi thriller drama war

It's been a really long time since we've seen any updates about an adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's "Cat's Cradle." The last we heard, the project, a satire about the arms race which was first published in 1963, was being considered as a feature film but it looks like there's a different future in the cards for this adaptation and so far, it's looking like a great adapation to come.

Last week FX confirmed that it was moving ahead with "Cat's Cradle" as a limited series so rather than a 2 hour movie, we're likely to get anywhere between 3 and 10 hours of material. As a bonus bit of good news, the adaptation is being handled by Noah Hawley who has quickly made a name for himself with his adaptation of Fargo (season two of which is shaping up to be just as great as the first).

It's expected that Hawley will both write the adaptation and act as showrunner on the new project.

I wonder if the sudden movement on this project has anything to do with the recent release of "The Man in the High Castle?" Either way, this is good news indeed. Stay tuned for more to come.
