Matt Reeves’ 6th & Idaho and Netflix Land Sci-Fi Classic Way Station

-

Netflix and 6th & Idaho have secured the rights to Way Station, a sci-fi thriller based on the Hugo Award-Winning novel by Clifford D. Simak, to adapt into a feature film.

In the film, for more than 100 years Enoch Wallace has been the keeper of a Way Station on Earth for intergalactic alien travelers as they teleport across the universe. But the gifts of knowledge and immortality that his intergalactic guests have bestowed upon him are proving to be a nightmarish burden, for they have opened Enoch’s eyes to humanity’s impending destruction. Still, one final hope remains for the human race.


The producers are 6th & Idaho’s Matt Reeves, Adam Kassan and Rafi Crohn, as well as Adam Massey and Lincoln Stalmaster. Way Station falls under Matt Reeves’ first look deal with his production company 6th & Idaho. They are currently developing Animal Farm, Button Man, Idol and Recursion.

The official description of the 1963 book goes as follows:

In backwoods Wisconsin, an ageless hermit welcomes alien visitors—and foresees the end of humanity… Enoch Wallace is not like other humans. Living a secluded life in the backwoods of Wisconsin, he carries a nineteenth-century rifle and never seems to age—a fact that has recently caught the attention of prying government eyes. The truth is, Enoch is the last surviving veteran of the American Civil War and, for close to a century, he has operated a secret way station for aliens passing through on journeys to other stars. But the gifts of knowledge and immortality that his intergalactic guests have bestowed upon him are proving to be a nightmarish burden, for they have opened Enoch’s eyes to humanity’s impending destruction. Still, one final hope remains for the human race . . . though the cure could ultimately prove more terrible than the disease.
