Scott Snyder and Tony S. Daniel’s Nocterra is in the works at Netflix
Netflix is adding another comic title to its catalogue. The streaming platform is teaming with writer Roberto Patino to develop a series based on the comic series Nocterra. Nocterra was created by Scott Snyder and Tony S. Daniel and published by Image Comics. It’s part of a multi-year deal between Patino and Netflix.
Patino is currently working on HBO Max’s adaptation of the DC Comics/Vertigo series DMZ.
Nocterra takes place in a world where darkness has enveloped the world. Val Riggs moves people and goods across the darkness in her truck dodging the creatures called shades corrupted by the darkness.
Patino will pen the script, serve as showrunner and exec produce alongside James Wan, Michael Clear, and Rob Hackett.
Netflix has focused on building its comic adaptation base after its deal with marvel ended. The platform purchased Mark Millar’s Millarworld and has adapted other comics such as Umbrella Academy from Dark Horse, the manga Cowboy Bebop, and the film Extraction based on the comic Ciudad.
