Richard Madden Is Into “Strange New Things”

Richard Madden (“Cinderella,” “Game of Thrones”) has been set to star in the Kevin MacDonald-directed drama pilot “Strange New Things” for Amazon Prime.

Based on Michel Faber’s cult hit book “The Book of Strange New Things,” the story follows a priest (Madden) sent into space to help found a new colony but what he ends up discovering not only puts his faith to the test but life as we know it.

Matt Charman is writing while Andy Harries and Lila Rawlings are producing. The pilot will score a release sometime next year.
