BOOM!, Peter Dinklage, Netflix, and Matt Reeves Team Up for a Feature Version of Last Sons of America
BOOM! Studios, Peter Dinklage, Netflix, and Matt Reeves are coming together for a feature version of Last Sons of America by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Matthew Dow Smith.
Dinklage will start in the film that’s set in a not too distant feature where Americans can no longer conceive children which have become a valuable commodity around the globe. The story follows two brothers, Jackie and Julian (Dinklage), who operate as adoption agents in Colombia. There they secure deals with families willing to give up their children for a “better life” in America. Things spiral out of control dragging the brothers into a dark mystery about the world’s status quo.
Josh Mond will direct and is adapting, while additional casting is still being worked on. Producing are Reeves and Adam Kassan for 6th & Idaho, Dinklage and David Ginsberg for Estuary Films, and Ross Richie and Stephen Christy for BOOM! Executive producers are 6th & Idaho’s Rafi Crohn and BOOM!’s Adam Yoelin.
6th & Idaho and BOOM! are also in pre-production on adapting another comic series, Mouse Guard, for Fox.
