1. “First look” at yet another Netflix sci-fi effort, this time based on a novella by George R.R. Martin, him who gave us Game of Thrones.
2. Of all places, Nightflyers is currently filming at Troy Studios in Limerick. Great get, guys.
3. It stars Boardwalk Empire‘s Gretchen Mol, and Irish talent in the shape of Eoin Macken and prolific character actor extraordinaire Brían F. O’Byrne.
4. Nightflyers was previously adapted into a 1987 film that it looks as if nobody saw.
5. No release date is set, but Netflix will screen the series everywhere outside the USA when it debuts, presumably later this year.
