Amazon has won a competitive bidding war against Peacock, HBO Max and TNT to pick up rights to Rick Remender’s iconic comic “Fear Agent” with plans to turn it into a streaming series.
The official synopsis reads: “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.”
The producing team of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“The Boys,” “Preacher”), Matt Tolmach (“Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Future Man”) and “Shazam” helmer David F. Sandberg are coming together for the project with the pilot penned by Mattson Tomlin who co-wrote the upcoming “The Batman”. Sandberg will direct said pilot.
Remender and co-creator Tony Moore, who drew the series, are also executive producing as is Lotta Losten, David Manpearl and James Weaver. Remender recently signed a three-year overall deal with Sony Pictures Television who will produce the show.
