Half a century after the Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton had made us afraid of the disease The classic sci-fi novel The Andromeda Strain receives just like dinosaurs and robots, finally a sequel. And it will be released this year.
HarperCollins Publishers announced in a press release that Crichton Estate has approved the release of The Andromeda Evolution a direct continuation of Crichton's 1969 classic "Technothriller". The film, which was turned into a film in 1971 and became a mini-series on A & E in 2008, is about a deadly and rapidly replicating alien organism released in a New Mexico city, turning human blood into powder and almost everything that touches it kills.
The sequel was written by Daniel H. Wilson, author of Robopocalypse in collaboration with CrichtonSun LLC. He will investigate the return and resurgence of the deadly Andromeda virus. "As a lifelong fan of Michael Crichton, it was an incredible honor to revisit the iconic world he created and continue this adventure," Wilson said in a statement.
Crichton died in 2008 and has since died a few posthumous projects to continue the worlds and characters he has created. For example, Richard Preston The Hot Zone completed a novel in which Crichton worked at the time of his death. In addition, we have seen how the Jurassic Park franchise continued with Jurassic World and we have entered HBO's Westworld which will soon enter their third market of the season.
The Andromeda Evolution will be released on November 12 .
