I think it’s safe to say, we’re all addicted to technology on some level. Sure you might not think you are, but whether it’s out TVs or our phones, technology is all around us. So, how far is too far? That’s just one of the themes explored by the Image Comics story Tokyo Ghost from Rick Remender and Sean Gordon Murphy. Soon, you’ll be able to watch it on the latest technology too.
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Legendary will release an adaptation of the futuristic cyberpunk story. Cary Fukunaga, who directed the upcoming James Bond movie No Time To Die will direct the feature adaptation. Hayden Lautenbach and Jon Silk will join Fukunaga as producers on the project.
Here is the full synopsis provided in the report: “Tokyo Ghost is set in 2089 when humanity has become fully addicted to technology as an escape from reality. The story follows peacekeepers Debbie Decay and Led Dent, who are working in the Isles of Los Angeles and are given a job that will take them to the last tech-free country on Earth: the garden nation of Tokyo.”
I remember reviewing, and loving, the first issue back in September of 2015. Image would go on to publish 10 issues, two graphic novels and a deluxe release. You can actually read the first issue for free here.
The adaptation is in the very early stages, so little is known about any casting or a release date. Keep checking back for updates.
