Syfy is planning a TV series, based off of the famous poem, Beowulf. Matt Greenberg (1408) is attached to write the series.
Beowulf follows a Scandinavian hero whose adventures begin with the slaying of a feared monster, Grendel. In 2007, it was adapted for the big screen by Robert Zemeckis.
Beowulf comes to Syfy as the network is prepping several other new series including 12 Monkeys, Dominion (a take on the 2010 feature Legion, Bryan Fuller’s High Moon and Gale Anne Hurd’s Alien Hunter.
