Tokyo Ghost Movie Adaptation of Comic Sets Cary Fukunaga To Direct

Fukunaga has signed on to direct an adaptation of the cyberpunk comic Tokyo Ghost for Netflix. Fukunaga recently directed the latest James Bond movie.

Cary Fukunaga has signed on to direct an upcoming movie adaptation of the dystopian sci-fi comic, Tokyo Ghost, coming from Netflix. The 10-issue Image Comics series was written by Rick Remender, drawn by Sean Murphy, and colored by Matt Hollingsworth in 2015 with a possibly unfinished ending.

THR reports that Fukunaga will helm Netflix’s feature film based on the cyberpunk series. The True Detective director recently directed the latest Daniel Craig James Bond movie, No Time to Die, which is on its way for a premiere this October. Before producing True Detective’s much-discussed season 1, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, the filmmaker directed a haunting rendition of Jane Eyre with Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender in 2011. He later directed Beasts of No Nation and Netflix’s Maniac miniseries.

Here’s the official synopsis for Tokyo Ghost, the comic:

The Isles of Los Angles 2089 – Humanity is addicted to technology. Getting a virtual buzz is the only thing left to live for, and gangsters run it all.

Constables Led Dent and Debbie Decay are about to be given a job that will force them out of the familiar squalor of LA and into the last tech-less country on Earth: The Garden Nation of Tokyo.
