Director Rupert Wyatt’s been attached to Echo Chamber for quite a while now. Back in 2012, it was reported that HBO was developing the miniseries, which would cover the true story of a British solider who infiltrates the Irish Republican Army in the 1980s. As he rises through the ranks, he must deal with betrayal and life threatening situations.
At that time, the plan was to air the series as three 90-minute telecasts, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. On top of that, while talking to Wyatt for his upcoming release, The Gambler, he told me that Echo Chamber isn’t about the British solider/IRA scenario specifically and that his take has a sci-fi component to it. Hit the jump for more.
