by Thomas Tuna

We’ve seen the future–and it’s radioactive.

The bestselling horror series Geiger from Image Comics is getting a small-screen adaptation from Justin Simien (the upcoming Haunted Mansion reboot) for Paramount Television Studios, according to a report on Deadline.

The comic book–created by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank–is set in the year 2050 and follows Tariq Geiger–a radioactive family man–who spends his days and nights “doing anything he must to protect the fallout shelter housing his family,” according to the description.

When Geiger fights off a group of violent scavengers, “he faces the wrath of the criminal empire they’re connected to.”

No word has dropped yet about casting choices or production schedules, but Johns will write the pilot and serve as showrunner for the series. The executive producers include Jamie Iracleanos, Kyle Laursen, Simien, Frank and Johns.
