JOHN WICK Director Chad Stahelski is Set To Helm a Dystopian Sci-Fi Film Called ANALOG
Lionsgate has hired John Wick director Chad Stahelski to helm the feature film adaptation of the dystopian sci-fi comic Analog. The Image Comics title comes from writer Gerry Duggan and artist David O'Sullivan. David Leitch (Deadpool 2) is also on board as a producer.
The story is set in 2024 when the internet is used only for porn after the world is "mass-doxxed". This is the official description for the comic:
The security of the internet has been totally destroyed. Secrets are no longer sent over the web, they're entrusted to armed couriers called "Ledger Men," like human punching-bag Jack McGinnis. He's got a gun in one hand and a briefcase handcuffed to the other. Danger lurks around every corner, and Jack has to watch his back—because he had a part in the cyber attack that changed the world. Get in on the ground floor of this new ongoing series and thrill as we slam Jack's fist into the faces of spies, mercs, fascists, and eventually less punchable adversaries like a very grumpy artificial intelligence.
I've never read the comic, but it certainly sounds like it could make for a wild movie! I'm sure Stahelski will do some cool things with it as he adapts it for the big screen. Ryan J. Condal, co-creator of the USA Network sci-fi series Colony, will write the script and I guess Stahelski will get to work on it when he's finished with John Wick: Chapter 3.
Have you read the comic? If you have, what do you think about Stahelski taking it on?
