Straight from the roaring success of its second season, Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy has been lined up to produce Crater, a new story about coming of age in space. Set on a moon colony, Crater draws inspiration from 80s teen drama Stand By Me and is anticipated to appeal to fans of Stranger Things.
FOX has purchased the spec script, written by John J. Griffin, and also has Dan Levine (most known for the 2016 sci-fi drama Arrival) producing alongside Levy. Rpin Suwannath, Paris Latsis, Terry Dougas and Gordon Gray are set to executive produce, with Suwannath conceiving the original idea for the script with Griffin.
The plot centres around a boy living in a lunar mining colony. After the death of his father, the boy and his four best friends explore a mysterious crater, after which they are even more mysteriously relocated permanently to another planet.
