John Wick director Chad Stahelski will adapt Gerry Duggan and David O'Sullivan's Image Comics series Analog to film with Ryan Condal, the creator of the USA sci-fi series Colony.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stahelski is expected to direct from a screenplay written by Condal. Analog writer and co-creator Duggan will share a "story by" credit with Condal for the film. Lionsgate, the studio behind the John Wick franchise, won a bidding war for the rights to produce the adaptation with 87eleven, the production company Stahelski co-runs with Deadpool 2 director David Leitch.
Launched through Image Comics last month, Analog is a dystopian tale by writer Gerry Duggan and artist David O'Sullivan. Set in a near-future where privacy and security on the internet have been completely compromised, secrets are now transported by hand through armed couriers. The story follows courier Jack McGinnis as he finds himself the target of white nationalists, organized crime and the NSA in a globe-spanning tale full of bone-crunching action, neo-noir and Duggan's trademark dark humor.
Stahelski is currently filming John Wick: Chapter 3 in New York City for a 2019 release, while Condal is developing a Conan the Barbarian series for Amazon. Analog does not yet have a release date.
