Fear Agent (Amazon)

Seth Rogen, David F. Sandberg Tackling Rick Remender's 'Fear Agent' for Amazon

Seth Rogen, Matt Tolmach, and David F. Sandberg have teamed up to adapt the Rick Remender-written comic Fear Agent as a series.

Amazon has won a competitive bidding war to pick up the rights to the title, beating out Peacock, HBO Max and TNT, according to sources.

Sandberg, who directed Shazam! and Annabelle: Creation, is on board to helm and executive produce while rising scribe Mattson Tomlin, who co-wrote Robert Pattinson-led The Batman, is on board to pen the pilot.

Remender and Agent co-creator Tony Moore, who drew the series, are also exec producing as is Lotta Losten.

Rogen, Tolmach, Remender and the cohorts are planning on keeping the ambitious and offbeat tone of the comic. The logline is thus: Interstellar invaders. Time travel. Clones of clones of clones, and lots of whiskey. Whether he’s battling the scourge of 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.

The comic, with Jerome Opena also an artist on the series, was first published by Image when it launched in 2005 then moved to Dark Horse, which became its home until  the story’s conclusion in 2012. The comic had a dedicated following  and attracted Hollywood attention early on, with Universal at one point developing an adaptation for the big screen.
