Justin Cronin’s very unique vampire trilogy is coming to FOX as a series. THE PASSAGE stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar as a federal agent who is in charge of protecting a young girl who is the test-subject for a government controlled virus. The virus could either cure all diseases, or bring down the entire human race, so as you can imagine, it’s a hotly guarded secret.
Cronin’s books follow the development of the virus across three very long but fascinating books, and FOX originally purchased the rights to the novels to be made into a film. With the success of recent books to television series, FOX has decided instead to bring it to the small screen, where they can probably stretch it out into a multitude of seasons. Great for fans of this series, fans of vampire tales, and also new watchers.
No word yet on starting dates, but if you want to get started on the books (because they’re always better), you might want to pick them up now. These books are LONG–like 600+ pages long…each. Get out that library card and download or check out one today.
