“The Mosquito Coast” is a TV series that is developed by Neil Cross and Tom Bissel. The series is a typical drama that is based on a book by the same name. The book is written by Paul Theroux. “The Mosquito Coast” novel was released the first time in 1981. It is a winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. The novel owns 5 parts. It is not for the first time that the novel is going to have an adaptation. In 1986, the novel was adapted into a film that starred Harrison Ford, Helen Mirren, and River Phoenix. The movie was mostly praised for its picturization as it was shot in Georgia, Baltimore, Maryland, and Belize. However, “The Mosquito Coast” movie failed to earn more than its budget and was a massive failure.

This time, the series is again getting an adaptation but in the form of television series. People have higher expectations from the series as the movie of the same name and genre was a massive fault. However, Harrison Ford, who was the actor in the film, said in 1992 that he is proud that he did the movie despite it failed in impressing people. The movie was unable to adapt the style of the novel, and that is why it failed on box office, as Ford said.

“The Mosquito Coast” is directed by Rupert Wyatt. He is known for his directing work in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.” That is why fans expect an amazing series adaptation of “The Mosquito Coast” from Rupert Wyatt.

Below are the key details of the upcoming “The Mosquito Coast” tv series, which includes its release date, cast, and much more.
