Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001 Sequel Is Headed For Television

3001Nearly 50 years after its original theatrical release, Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey remains both one of the best science fiction movies ever made, and one of the best movies ever made, full stop. The epic scope, the sense of wonder, the jaw-dropping visuals, all ensure that the film still holds up perfectly, even all these decades later. While Kubrick was never a sequel kind of guy, Clarke did continue the story in several sequel novels, one of which was adapted into director Peter Hyams’ 2010: The Year We Makes Contact in 1984. (And my love for that flick is well established given how often I find excuses to reference it.) Now the world of the mysterious labyrinths will be returning to the screen…but this time it will be the TV screen.
