Seth Rogen and David F. Sandberg will adapt Rick Remender’s comic Fear Agent for Amazon. THR reports Amazon beat out Peacock, HBO Max, and TNT for the rights.
Mattson Tomlin (The Batman) will write the adaptation, which follows this logline: Interstellar invaders. Time travel. Clones of clones of clones, and lots of whiskey. Whether he’s battling the scourge of space, going back in time to stop the alien invasion that changed Earth forever, or winning his ex-wife back, there’s nothing that Heath Huston won’t do to try to right the wrongs and gets his family back. He is, after all, the last Fear Agent.
Sandberg, who is best known for directing films such as Shazam!, Annabelle: Creation, and Lights Out will take the helm and executive produce with Rogen, Tolmach, Remender, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, David Manpearl, Lotta Losten, and Fear Agent co-creator Tony Moore.
Fear Agent was first published by Image back in 2005 before moving to Dark Horse. Universal was developing a big-screen adaptation at one point. And it makes sense that Rogen was finally the one to bring it to the screen as he’s been behind such comic-to-screen hits as AMC’s adaptation of Garth Ennis’ Preacher and Amazon’s own Ennis adaptation The Boys.
