Heinlein’s “Moon” To Be Adapted For TV

Bainframe has acquired the rights to “Starship Troopers” author Robert A. Heinlein’s 1951 novella “The Man Who Sold The Moon” with plans to adapt the property for television.

The story follows a businessman possessed by a dream to take humanity off-Earth. He begins a private space company to colonize the moon, but is driven to the brink while single-handedly ushering the human race to its next evolutionary step.

Allen Bain (“Revenge Of The Green Dragons”) will produce the project, his company’s second acquisition following their acquisition of Octavia E. Butler’s “Dawn”.
