The Hollywood Reporter has noted that Nocterra by Scott Snyder is in the works at Netflix, according to their article today.
Netflix continues to pad out its roster of comic book titles.
The streaming giant is teaming with writer Roberto Patino to develop a series adaptation of Image Comics title Nocterra. The drama, which is in development, marks the first project to stem from a new, multiple-year overall deal Patino (Sons of Anarchy, Westworld, DMZ) has signed with the streaming giant.
Patino, who currently serves as showrunner on HBO Max’s upcoming HBO Max DC Comics adaptation of DMZ, will create and develop new projects for Netflix via his Analog Inc. production banner.
Nocterra, penned by Scott Snyder and Tony S. Daniel, is a sci-fi adventure that revolves around Val Riggs, a ferryman who relays people and goods through a world enveloped by a lasting darkness that turns the living into monstrous creatures called shades. Patino will pen the script, serve as showrunner and exec produce alongside James Wan, Michael Clear and Rob Hackett.
