SFX - - The Unmissable 2018 Preview -

Richard Mor­gan’s hard-as-nails, cool-as­ex­ple­tive cy­ber­punk noir has been adapted as a 10-part series for Net­flix by Lo­goeta Kalo­gridis, the writer of Shut­ter Is­land (promis­ing) and Terminator

Genisys (not so much…). Its an­ti­hero is the mar­vel­lously named Takeshi Ko­vacs (played by the RoboCop re­make’s Joel Kin­na­man), a mil­i­tary pris­oner whose con­scious­ness has been put on dig­i­tal ice. He’s then down­loaded into a new body to solve a mur­der in a world where tech­nol­ogy has made death prac­ti­cally im­pos­si­ble. James Pure­foy (The Fol­low­ing), Dichen Lach­man (Doll­house) and Leonardo

Nam (West­world) co-star. Ex­pect lots of in­tense glow­er­ing.

Joel Kin­na­man looks too calm for a rag­ing dystopia.
