Just what the world needs–another mean-tempered kaiju on the loose.
Project Nemesis–the first novel in Jeremy Robinson’s popular The Nemesis Saga series–is being brought to the small screen by Sony TV and Original Film, according to a report on Deadline.
The TV adaptation–helmed by Chad Stahelski (the John Wick film franchise)–will be based on the kaiju novel that starts when the DNA of Nemesis–the Greek goddess of vengeance–is merged with that of Maigo, a murdered little girl, according to the synopsis.
The horrifying result is a “trauma-fueled kaiju” that rampages from the backwoods of Maine to Boston is search of the killer. Leading the response to this monstrous threat is DHS agent Jon Hudson, “whose leadership of the agency’s paranormal division was a joke–until now.”
Neal Moritz, Toby Jaffe, Pavun Shetty, Jason Spitz and Stahelski will serve as executive producers.
Stahelski said he is a huge fan of the original novels. “From the moment I started reading them, I was hooked,” he said. “This amazing book series has everything I love about the genre–martial arts, action, great adventure and, of course, kaiju.”
