You remember Altered Carbon, right? It’s the amazing book by Richard K. Morgan that redefined the whole concept of cyberpunk in XXI century, together with being an action-packed thriller that you can’t possibly put down. (And if you haven’t read it yet, go and grab a copy. Now. You won’t regret it).
I have heard rumours about Netflix doing a TV series a while ago and finally, voila’, the first trailer just came out. Awesomeness!
The show is written and produced by Laeta Kalogridis (the one already involved in Avatar, Shutter Island, Terminator Genesis, just to mention a few) and it’s going to run over 10 episodes, starting in February 2018.
And guess who’s playing Takeshi Kovacs -protagonist and unlikely hero – a sort of interstellar cops (called “envoy”) with a difficult mission to carry out? Joel Kinnaman (House of Cards), and I’m sure he’s going to portray more than well one of my favourite characters *ever* of SF literature. Last but not the least, James Purefoy (Rome) is going to play Bancroft -and if you don’t know who Bancroft is, I won’t write any spoiler here (read the book, read the book, etc).
For more, here the official website of the show. And the trailer, of course.
