Paramount Unleashes A “Daemon”

Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will produce an adaptation of Daniel Suarez’s techno-thriller “Daemon” for Paramount PIctures says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story centers on an iconic game designer who, before he died, set up a program to fight mankind, with the story then exploring the ensuing man-vs.-machine battle.

A daemon is a computer program that runs without the direct control of a human. A sequel to the book is also in the works and has been acquired.
