Another Image Comics series is making the leap to live-action, this time, the cinema screen. And it is Legendary Pictures that is leading the charge.
Nonplayer, the comic book series from writer-illustrator Nate Simpson. The pic will be written by Eric Pearson, whose credits include co-writer on Disney/Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok and who wrote on ABC’s Marvel’s Agent Carter.
Described as “Guardians of the Galaxy meets The Matrix“, it follows a tamale delivery girl named Dana Stevens who lives the life she wishes she could as a high-ranking warrior doing anything she can to level up in an augmented reality video game. When AI infects the game and madness spills into the real world, she’ll learn that escaping from reality is no longer an option, and has to level up and become her alter-ego in the real world.
The two-comic series was published in 2011 and 2015 respectively.
