Joel Edgerton and Jennifer Connelly will star in an Apple TV series adaptation of the Blake Crouch sci-fi novel Dark Matter.

The nine-episode series will follow Jason Dessen (Edgerton), a physicist, professor, and family man who – one night while walking home on the streets of Chicago – is abducted into an alternate version of his life. Wonder quickly turns to nightmare when he tries to return to his reality amid the multiverse of lives he could have lived. In this labyrinth of mind-bending realities, he embarks on a harrowing journey to get back to his true family and save them from the most terrifying, unbeatable foe imaginable: himself.

Connelly (Snowpiercer, A Beautiful Mind Top Gun: Maverick) will star as Daniela, Jason’s wife.

Crouch (Wayward Pines, Good Behavior) is adapting Dark Matter for the screen and will also serve as executive producer and showrunner. Edgerton also executive produces. Matt Tolmach and David Manpearl of Matt Tolmach Productions executive produce, with Jakob Verbruggen set to direct the first three episodes. Sony Pictures Television will produce.
