Two talented filmmakers are teaming up to write the script for a potential TV series based on Explorers, the cult favorite 1985 sci-fi movie which was directed by Joe Dante and starred Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix, and Jason Presson.
Cary Fukunaga and David Lowery are joining forces to pen the script, which will just be a pilot episode for now, and the potential show’s bible—a pitch that includes more information on the show, its characters, future episodes, etc. to help sell the potential series to networks.
