Rick Remender, creator of the comic series, will be penning the script.

It is noted that this is not the first Remender’s comic series that has been adapted, after “Deadly Class” was made into a one season series on Syfy back in 2019.

On the other hand, Fukunaga, who is known for movies like 2016’s “Beasts of No Nation” and 2011’s “Jane Eyre”, is prepping up for the release of his James Bond film, “No Time to Die” – slated for 8 October release.

“No Time to Die” finally gets an October release after multiple delays due to the pandemic
