Wolfgang Petersen Developing ‘Ghost Brigades’ for SyFy

SyFy has announced that Oscar nominee Wolfgang Petersen (“Air Force One,” “Das Boot”) and Scott Stuber (“Safe House,” “Ted”) have signed on to develop “Ghost Brigades.”

Show is based on the “Old Man’s War” universe book series about John Perry, who, at age 75, enlists into the Colonial Defense Force to fight a war for man’s expansion into the cosmos.  Technology in the universe allows experiences and consciousness to be transplanted into younger bodies, which are outfitted to endure the rigors of war in space.  Soon after John arrives, he finds himself involved with a mysterious woman — and at the center of an unraveling conspiracy involving the elite fighting force known as the Ghost Brigades.

Jake Thornton and Ben Lustig have also signed on to pen the pilot.  Universal Cable Productions is set to produce the series for the cabler, along with Petersen’s Radiant Productions and Stuber’s Bluegrass Films.
