Netflix is teaming up with Matt Reeves’ 6th & Idaho, BOOM! Studios and Peter Dinklage‘s Estuary Films on an adaptation of the graphic novel Last Sons of America. 6th and Idaho acquired the rights to the graphic novel from Boom! Studios.
The film will be based on the BOOM! Studios graphic novel by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Matthew Dow Smith. Josh Mond (James White) will write and direct the movie, starring Golden Globe and multiple Emmy Award winner Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones).
Last Sons of America is describes as follows: “In the not too distant future, Americans are no longer able to conceive and children have become a valuable commodity around the globe. Brothers Jackie and Julian (Dinklage) are operating as adoption agents in Colombia, securing deals with families willing to give their children up for a presumably better life in America. When the brothers suddenly find themselves with their backs against the wall, Jackie makes a grave mistake that sends them spiraling into a dark mystery at the root of their world’s status quo; a mystery much darker than they might be able to bear.”
The producers are Matt Reeves and Adam Kassan for 6th & Idaho, Peter Dinklage and David Ginsberg for Estuary Films, and Ross Richie and Stephen Christy for Boom! Studios. The executive producers are 6th & Idaho’s Rafi Crohn and Boom! Studios’ Adam Yoelin.
6th & Idaho and BOOM! Studios are currently in pre-production on Mouse Guard for 20th Century Fox, where BOOM! Studios has a first look deal. Matt Reeves has a first look deal at Netflix for 6th & Idaho.
