According to The Hollywood Reporter, FOX has ordered a pilot for a The Passage TV series, based on Justin Cronin’s best-selling vampire novels.

The series, about an attempt to save the human race from a vampire plague, would potentially take place over the span of a century, with a young girl named Amy at the center. Cronin’s book tells of terminally ill patients who become healthy after they are bitten by bats in South America. The government conducts secret tests on human subjects to see if the virus can cure illness, but the result is an apocalyptic unleashing of bloodthirsty vampire test subjects that include death row inmates.

The pilot was written by Elizabeth Heldens (Friday Night Lights), Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes, Let Me In) attached to executive produce alongside Scott Free’s Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker. Cronin will also co-exec produce alongside Reeves’ 6th and Idaho Productions executive vice president Adam Kassan.

Reeves was first announced to direct a film version of The Passage in 2011, with Jason Keller redrafting a script by John Logan.
