‘Fear Agent’ Series Lands at Amazon, From ‘Shazam!’ Director David F. Sandberg & ‘The Batman’ Writer Mattson Tomlin
Rick Remender’s ‘Fear Agent’ will soon receive a live-action adaptation, and will have quite the pedigree backing it up.
Amazon will produce and distribute the series, having won a lengthy bidding war that included such services as Peacock, HBO Max, and TNT.
Remender’s sci-fi comic, which tells the story of an alcoholic space adventurer named Heath Huston, will be supported by producing duo Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (‘Future Man,’ ‘The Boys’), ‘Shazam!’ helmer David F. Sandberg (who will also direct), and ‘The Batman’ co-writer Mattson Tomlin, who serves as the pilot scribe.
This will be the second Remender adaptation to hit the small screen, following the short-lived but much-acclaimed adaptation of ‘Deadly Class.’ Like the now-cancelled Syfy series, Remender will also serve as an executive producer on ‘Fear Agent.’
The full premise of the series is below:
“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. He is, after all, the last Fear Agent.”
There is no cast or premire date as of now.
