Charles Dance introduces us to SyFy’s adaption of “Childhood’s End”

Posted on

Love Clarke! Nothing makes me happier than seeing some of his work adapted so a wide audience (those that don’t read much) can enjoy his ideas.

“Childhood’s End follows the peaceful invasion of Earth by the mysterious Overlords. Karellen (Charles Dance), the ambassador for the Overlords, makes first contact with Earthling Ricky Stormgren. Karellen’s comforting words and amazing technological gifts quickly win humanity’s favor, beginning decades of apparent utopia at the cost of human identity and culture. However, his refusal to reveal his physical appearance and insistence on dealing only through Ricky have some people questioning whether his intentions are truly benevolent.”

Based on the novel of the same name by Arthur C. Clarke, this adaptation will be 6 hours long and be shown over 3 nights on the SyFy Channel in 2015 (dates as yet unknown).

    Of course, one would hope that seeing a screen adaptation might also spur someone to read the book, but you never know. Thanks for the info!
