“Project Nemesis”, the first of a 5.6-part Kaiju novel series from author Jeremy Robinson, is on track for a television debut with none other than Chad Stahelski set to direct and executive produce for Sony TV, according to Deadline‘s Denise Petski.
When the DNA of Nemesis, the Greek goddess of vengeance, is merged with that of Maigo, a murdered little girl, the resulting trauma-fueled kaiju rampages from the backwoods of Maine to the streets of Boston in search of their killer. Heading up the response to this otherworldly threat is Jon Hudson, a sarcastic DHS agent whose leadership of the agency’s Paranormal division was a joke—until now.
Sony TV and Neal H. Moritz’s Original Film are developing the series for telelvision with Moritz, Toby Jaffe and Pavun Shetty exec producing along with Stahelski and Jason Spitz. The show marks the latest move to television for Stahelski as he makes way for another round on John Wick: Chapter 4 which releases next March for Lionsgate.
Stahelski says of Project Nemesis: “I can’t say how excited I am to help bring Jeremy Robinson’s Project Nemesis to the screen. From the first moment I started reading it, I was hooked. This amazing book series has everything I love about the genre: martial arts, action, great characters, and of course, Kaiju!”
