Fear Agent: Seth Rogen, David F. Sandberg adapting comic for Amazon
The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Seth Rogen (Preacher, The Boys, Black Monday) and David F. Sandberg (Shazam!, Annabelle: Creation) will be adapting Rick Remender’s (Deadly Class) sci-fi comic Fear Agent into a series for Amazon after the streamer acquired rights to the title following a competitive bidding war with Peacock, HBO Max, and TNT.
The series’ logline 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.
Mattson Tomlin (The Batman) is attached to write the pilot. Sandberg will direct and executive produce, with Rogen and his Point Grey Productions partners Evan Goldberg and James Weaver also executive producing along with Matt Tolmach and David Manpearl. Fear Agent co-creator Tony Moore, Remender, and Lotta Losten will also executive produce. Josh Fagen will oversee for Point Grey.
The Fear Agent adaptation comes from Sony Pictures Television, where Remender has signed a three-year overall deal with. Remender and Sony Pictures Television previously collaborated on Syfy’s Deadly Class series adaptation of Remender’s dark comic series in 2018.
Fear Agent was first published by Image when it launched in 2005 before moving to Dark House. The story concluded in 2012.
