UPDATED: British producer Vivek J. Tiwary (The Fifth Beatle) and writer Warren Ellis (Red) have teamed for adventure/thriller miniseries Ascension, which revolves around the history and future of astronomy and mankind’s impulse for the stars. Luther star Idris Elba is considering a potential double-starring in the project, as the Egyptian polymath Imhotep in 3000 B.C. as well as a brilliant astronomer in the near future. Based on an original idea by Tiwary and his wife, Dr. Tracy Dennis-Tiwary, Ascension was co-created by Tiwary and Ellis, with Ellis writing the script. Elba, who would executive produce it, will next be seen in Prometheus.
