From Deadline
Netflix and Dark Horse Entertainment have inked a multi-year, first-look film and TV deal extending their creative partnership, at the same time announcing the launch of development on two new projects—a film titled Bang! and a series called Mind MGMT.

In the former spy thriller, based on the comic series by Matt Kindt and Wilfredo Torres, a terrorist cult sets out to start the apocalypse with a series of novels meant to brainwash their readers, with the world’s most celebrated spy then being sent to track down and kill the author responsible. Idris Elba (The Harder They Fall) will star in the film, written by Kindt (Ninjak vs the Valiant Universe) and Zak Olkewicz, which reunites the latter with director David Leitch following their work on Sony’s actioner Bullet Train. Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg will produce for Dark Horse, along with Leitch and Kelly McCormick for 87 North, and Elba.
