SyFy is planning on turning Neal Stephenson's The Diamond Age into a television series, and it's looking to George Clooney to make it happen. Insert your "Well, here's hoping it's better than Solaris" jokes here.
According to Variety, the network is looking to adapt Stephenson's The Diamond Age: Or a Young Lady's Illustrated Primer" into a longform series, with Clooney attached as producer. Screenwriter newbie Zoë Green - who currently has projects in development with Rob Reiner and Disney - has been announced as writer, but no launch date has been revealed.
