Syfy Wants To Exploit “Waterworld”

Cable network Syfy is looking into a possible continuation of one of history’s most famous flops, the Kevin Costner-led “Waterworld,” as part of their proposed Syfy Films division.

Syfy President Dave Howe calls it an underexploited piece of intellectual property, one that attracts a surprisingly large viewership (around 400,000 viewers watched the last airing).

A sequel isn’t in the cards, but Howe says a series inspired by the film is something that has been “talked about endlessly” and remains a possibility, he says.
