Image's Fear Agent Blasts Off for New Amazon Series
Jan 23, 2020
Rick Remender & Jerome Opena’s Image Comics title Fear Agent is bound for Amazon, where it will become a new series, according to an January 22 exclusive in The Hollywood Reporter.
Amazon Prime won the series after a bidding war against Peacock, HBO Max and TNT.
Mattson Tomlin, who co-wrote The Batman, will write pilot, which will be directed by Shazam! director David F. Sandberg, who will serve as executive producer with Matt Tolmach, Seth Rogen, and Rogen’s Point Grey Productions partners Evan Goldberg & James Weaver, along with David Manpearl, Lotta Losten and Remender.
According to THR: “The setting up of Agent comes as Remender, the prolific creator who is making heavy inroads into the comics-to-screen business, signs a three-year overall deal with Sony Pictures Television, which is behind Agent. Remender previously teamed with SPT to turn his comic Deadly Class into a series for Syfy.”
Per the project’s logline: “Interstellar invaders. Time travel. Clones of clones of clones, and lots of whiskey. Whether he’s battling the scourge of space, going back in time to stop the alien invasion that changed earth forever, or winning his ex-wife back, there’s nothing that Heath Huston won’t do to try to right the wrongs and gets his family back."
