Lifeforce Brings Space Vampires To TV

Ringleader Studios has acquired the rights to produce a television series adaptation of Colin Wilson’s 1976 novel “The Space Vampires”.

The story follows a group of astronauts who discover a derelict spaceship and return to Earth with three humanoid aliens that unleash a life-sucking plague upon humanity.

Ringleader is planning a small-screen episodic series along with a graphic novel, video game, and other media tie-ins.

The property was previously adapted by Tobe Hooper into the 1985 cult film “Lifeforce” starring Steve Railsback, Patrick Stewart, and Mathilda May.
