Netflix To Develop Film Based on BOOM! Studios' "Last Sons of America"
Feb 11, 2019
In the not too distant future, Americans are no longer able to conceive and children have become a valuable commodity around the globe. Brothers Jackie and Julian (Dinklage) are operating as adoption agents in Colombia, securing deals with families willing to give their children up for a presumably better life in America. When the brothers suddenly find themselves with their backs against the wall, Jackie makes a grave mistake that sends them spiraling into a dark mystery at the root of their world’s status quo; a mystery much darker than they might be able to bear.
Josh Mond (JAMES WHITE) will adapt and direct the project for the studio. Matt Reeves and Adam Kassan will Produce for 6th & Idaho, Peter Dinklage and David Ginsberg for Estuary Films, and Ross Richie and Stephen Christy for BOOM! Studios.
Golden Globe and multiple Emmy Award Winner Peter Dinklage will star in the feature film.
Rafi Crohn from 6th & Idaho and Adam Yoelin from BOOM! Studios are Executive Producers.
6th & Idaho and BOOM! Studios are currently in pre-production on MOUSE GUARD for 20th Century Fox, where BOOM! Studios has a first look deal. Matt Reeves has a first look deal at Netflix for his production company, 6th & Idaho.
