Rob Morrow, Olympus go for ‘Spin’

Feature version of Wilson's sci-fi thriller planned

Olympus Pictures and Rob Morrow’s Bits & Pieces Picture Co. are producing a feature version of Robert Charles Wilson’s sci-fi thriller “Spin.”

Olympus exec Leslie Urdang, who brought the property in, will produce.

The novel, which won the Hugo Award, centers on a young scientist trying to save humanity from the impending apocalypse of a “spin” that has enveloped the Earth amid realization that salvation may be found with the discovery of life on Mars.

“Spin” is the first of a planned trilogy, published by Tor Books. “Axis” was released last year and will be followed by “Vortex.” Wilson’s other works include Hugo Award nominees “Blind Lake,” “The Chronoliths” and “Darwinia” (1998).

Morrow’s “The Green Team” is a comedy pilot for NBC Universal/Reveille in which he produces, directs and acts. He’s also developing the series “Stiffed,” based on the book of the same name, about the 1980s music payola scandal.
