Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar Kormákur ("Contraband," "The Deep") and his RVK label are teaming with CCP Games for a TV series set within the interstellar universe of the MMORPG "EVE Online".

Set 20,000 years into the future, the story deals with rival societies trapped in the same space by a collapsed wormhole and characters from five warring factions battle it out in space ships.

The series will take inspiration from user-sourced stories submitted to the EVE website. Kormákur is currently filming "The Missionary" in Hungary.
