Alex Garland continues to up his video game in the sci-fi category, from his Oscar-winning function movie launching ( Ex Machina) to his already-buzzing sophomore effort ( Annihilation). Now, the filmmaker wishes to make an eight-episode FX series his next job.

Garland exposed information on exactly what seems his very first venture with the tv network after inking a total handle FX Productions in July 2017.

“The next project, provided it happens — hopefully we’re gonna shoot it later this year — [is] an eight-part television series for FX,” he informed Fandango in an interview. “It’s a sort of science-fiction, however it’s a a lot more technology-based sci-fi whereas Annihilation is a more hallucinogenic kind of sci-fi and more fantastical kind of sci-fi.”

Garland went on to describe that the untitled work “is a little more in typical with tasks I’ve dealt with like Ex Machina or Never Let Me Go, which are taking something about our world now– not our world in the future, however our world as it is right now– then drawing sort of reasonings and conclusions from it.”

He penned the movie script for Never Let Me Go, an adjustment of the unique by Kazuo Ishiguro embeded in a dystopian world about 3 alumni from a reclusive boarding school captured in a love triangle. With Ex Machina, about a developer got to assess the human qualities of an artificial robotic, the movie made an Oscar election for finest initial movie script and a win for finest visual impacts.

A representative for FX had no additional details to use EW on the prepared series at this time, however Garland stated it “is already written” and he wishes to direct all 8 episodes.

“For practical reasons that might not be possible,” he included. “That’s the way I’m thinking about it at the moment.”

Garland’s most current work, Annihilation, brings the book by Jeff VanderMeer to life. The movie will open in theaters on Feb. 23 with Natalie Portman leading a group of female researchers examining The Shimmer, a harmful, transcendent location that follows its own set of natural laws.

” Alex’s presents as an author have actually long appeared, and he made a big impression with his directorial launching Ex Machina,” Eric Schrier of FX Networks and FX Productions stated in a declaration in July. “We are thrilled that he is bringing his talents as a writer and director to television through FX Productions. We have enormous respect for his uncompromising creative vision and we look forward to supporting his original and bold ideas.”
