‘Tokyo Ghost’ the sci-fi comic written by Rick Remender, drawn by Sean Murphy and colored by Matt Hollingsworth, will have a big screen adaptation directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga for Legendary, all according to an exclusive from The Hollywood Reporter.
With a script by Rick Remender, drawing by Sean Murphy and color by Matt Hollingsworth, the story takes us to 2089 full of technological addictions.
‘Tokyo Ghost’, published in 10 issues by Image Comics in 2015, takes us to the not-so-distant 2089, a time when humanity is absolutely dependent on and addicted to technology and entertainment. In this context, we meet Debbie Decay and Led Dent, peacekeepers on the Los Angeles islands with a very particular mission in the last country without technology on Earth: the garden nation of Tokyo.
“It is a great, visual and exciting story that hides deep down that it is really a love story,” says Remender, creator of the story and other comics that have also been adapted to film and television, such as’ Deadly Class’ (of which he was showrunner for the Russo brothers) and ‘Fear Agent’, currently in preparation for Amazon by Point Gray (Seth Rogen’s producer).
Fukunaga began to pique critics’ curiosity with his 2011 ‘Jane Eyre’, but international fame really caught up with him in 2014 when, with the script by Nic Pizzolatto as the way forward, he directed the first season of ‘True Detective.’ .
Following the success came the nominated Netflix film, ‘Beasts of No Nation’ (2015), and the series ‘Maniac’ (2018). Currently, we have been waiting a year for the pandemic gap in which Universal decides to release its most recent film, “No Time to Die,” the latest James Bond installment with Daniel Craig as agent 007.
