Peter Dinklage, Matt Reeves Team Up for Netflix's Latest Comic Adaptation

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is set to star in Netflix's feature film adapting BOOM! Studios' dystopian graphic novel Last Sons of America.

According to Deadline, Matt Reeves -- the director of Warner Bros.' next solo Batman flick -- is attached to the project as producer, with Josh Mond sitting in the directorial chair. They will team up to tell Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Matthew Dow Smith's story about Julian Carver (Dinklage), as he and his brother Jackie act as shady adoption agents in a future where Americans can no longer have children. In a Children of Men-esque story, these parents are desperate to find the future of their nation and ready to spend big bucks to do so.

The duo convinces parents, especially from South America, to sell their babies, promising the children will have a better life. That is, until Jackie makes a grave mistake that ruffles the wrong feathers and lands the brothers in hot water. As their journey continues, they discover dark secrets about the trade that threatens to unravel America's child-trafficking system on the whole.

Additional casting is underway. Dinklage, Adam Kassan for 6th & Idaho, and David Ginsberg for Estuary Films are attached as producers, alongside BOOM! Studios' Ross Richie and Stephen Christy. 6th & Idaho's Rafi Crohn and BOOM! Studios' Adam Yoelin will executive produce. No release date has been announced for the film.
