“John Wick” Director Set To Direct “Project Nemesis” TV Adaptation
In an exclusive report from Deadline, John Wick director Chad Stahelski is set to direct and executive produce a TV adaptation of Project Nemesis for Sony TV.
Project Nemesis started out as a “kaiju-thriller” novel written by Jeremy Robinson that had branched out to a series of novels and comic books. Other novels Robinson had written include Island 731, Mirrorworld, Kronos, and Raising The Past, which all crosses over into the Nemesis novels.
The story is about John Hudson, lead investigator of the Department of Homeland Security paranormal center (aka Fusion Center-P), on a case of a Sasquatch attack until he discovers a hidden government base where a fractured sect has been experimenting on cloning a monster that is filled with the rage of a murdered girl.
Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz, Toby Jaffe, and Pavun Shetty will be executive producers of the TV series. Stahelski is known for the John Wick series and is currently working on Highlander and John Wick: Chapter 4.
I have had done reviews for all of the Nemesis novels back in 2017 if you wish to check them out, but I do recommend reading Project Nemesis and Project Maigo. I thought the first two out of the five novels Robinson wrote were the best in the Nemesis series. Project Nemesis and Project Maigo I felt it had a great beginning and end and the other three didn’t seem necessary.
Believe it or not, this has me excited to see what comes out of this TV adaptation. Chad Stahelski is mostly credited as a stunt actor and directing movies is something that he started recently with the John Wick movies. However, he has an interesting style in terms of how he directs those movies. His John Wick movies have dark stories and a lot of action that is very entertaining to watch. With Project Nemesis at his helm, it would be interesting to see what he does with a story about giant monsters. So this is a show that I am putting in my anticipation list along side MONARCH and the Skull Island anime (if Netflix doesn't cancel the project).
I want to know what you think. Have you read the novels? If so, does this make you excited for the show? If you have not read Project Nemesis, then does this show’s announcement have you interested in reading the novel? Leave a comment in the comments section of your thoughts on the announcement.
