FX and Noah Hawley are teaming for another high-profile adaptation.

The Fargo showrunner is developing a limited series based on the Kurt Vonnegut novel Cat's Cradle, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Hawley will write and exec produce the project, which is being produced by FX Productions and exec produced by IM Global. The famed 1963 novel, which examines issues concerning science, technology and religion, was a key component of IM Global Television's inaugural development slate when it was announced in April.

This marks the third collaboration between FX and Hawley. In addition to Fargo, which is currently in the middle of its second season, Hawley is on board to write and exec produce the cable network's comic book pilot Legion. FX Productions signed Hawley and his 26 Keys banner to a two-year overall deal in 2014.

Brad Yonover and Elkins Entertainment’s Sandi Love will co-executive produce.
