Paramount is Creating a Daemon


Paramount and Parkes/MacDonald have put into development a techno-thriller titled Daemon, based on the novel by publishing phenom Daniel Suarez.

Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will produce the project, which 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 titled “Freedom” is also in the works and has been acquired by Dutton.
