Sphere, Michael Crichton’s sci-fi novel about an ancient alien spacecraft discovered on the ocean floor, is headed to HBO. Westworld producer Denise Thé is handling the series, serving as showrunner, writer, and executive producer of this new adaptation. Sphere is one of Crichton’s better books, and it was previously adapted into a kind-of-terrible movie in 1998 starring Dustin Hoffman, Sharon Stone, and Samuel L. Jackson. So here’s hoping HBO gets it right.
