J.H. Wyman Teases Fox Sci-fi Pilot – Next Fringe?

bladerunner1

J.H. Wyman has teased his upcoming Fox pilot which will explore themes not unfamiliar to sci-fi fans, and certainly not Fringe and Blade Runner followers.

The project is currently dubbed ‘Human’, though that’s open to change.

via SFX:

“I’m really concerned with technology and humanity right now, and that scares me. I’m very, very interested in examining that – where the line is, the singularity, what’s going to happen to us in the future.”

“I started to just get worried. Because doing my research on Fringe allowed me to meet some very cool people who are strange, advanced thinkers. And there are some cats up in San Francisco – very, very wealthy people – who are billionaires, who don’t want to die… There’s a great documentary called The Transcendent Man. It’s Ray Kurzweil’s story, the guy who invented the Kurzweil organ. It talks about how, literally, in 35 years you’ll go to your doctor and he’ll say, ‘You have lung cancer. I’m going to write you a prescription.’ You go down to the pharmacy and they give you a silver pill of your own DNA, and then you are going to take it. It’s filled with hundreds of millions of nanites, little tiny computers. They’re specifically programmed by the pharmacist to go and find your cancer, and then they eat it away. It’s gone by dinnertime. So essentially we’ll live to 350, 400 years.
