John Wick director Chad Stahelski and Ryan Condal, the creator of USA’s alien invasion show “Colony”, are teaming up to adapt sci-fi comic Analog, reports THR.
Analog is set in the near-future where the security of the Internet has been rendered useless thanks to an event referred to as the Great Doxxing. Out of those ashes, people turn to so-called Ledger Men, agents who carry sensitive secrets the old-fashioned way – with a briefcase handcuffed to one arm, and a gun held in the other. The first issue of the comic was released in April.
Lionsgate has won a bidding war to pick up the title, an Image Comic from writer Gerry Duggan and artist David O’Sullivan. Condal will write the script while Stahelski will direct. 87eleven, the production banner run by Stahelski and fellow action maestro David Leitch, will produce. Duggan will share a story by credit with Condal.
Duggan is a former employee of L.A. comics shop Golden Apple that leapfrogged into writing comics. Among his credits was being the longtime co-scribe for Marvel Comics’ Deadpool titles, which landed him a reference in Deadpool 2. Condal worked on the script for Rampage, the recent Dwayne Johnson monster movie.
