Now, Apple just made its growing oeuvre even more interesting with the announcement of a sci-fi series that was previously thought to be unadaptable. Goyer is co-writing the upcoming Terminator reboot and has worked on The Dark Knight, batman Begins, Ghost Rider, and the Blade franchise, and Friedman's work includes Avatar 2, the War of the Worlds remake, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. This news comes nearly a year after the announcement that Skydance was in the process of developing the series for television with David S. Goyer and Josh Friedman.
Isaac Asimov was a science fiction writer, and during his lifetime was considered one of the "Big Three" names in the genre, along with Robert A. Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke. The story would eventually grow to a five-novel series, plus two prequels. The company has not said if it will distribute them through its own iTunes Store, where it sells shows and films by other companies, or on another platform.
Originally published as a short story series in Astounding Magazine in 1942, Asimov's Foundation is the complex saga of humans scattered on planets throughout the galaxy, all living under the rule of the Galactic Empire.

CNN understands that some world leaders may be invited on the basis of their personal relationships with Harry and Meghan. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's May 19 wedding will, according to Kensington Palace , have "around 600" guests.
Hollywood has been attempting to nail an adaptation of Foundation for years.
In the past, the highly sought-after Foundation material has been in the works as a feature film at Fox, Warner Bros, and Sony.
Foundation came close to becoming a TV series in 2014, when now-Westworld executive producer Jonathan Nolan signed on to develop a series for HBO. Goyer and Friedman will be executive producers and showrunners. They might just be able to pull this off.
