On the heels of a profitable rollout for “Godzilla vs. Kong,” director Adam Wingard’s dance card continues to fill up.
The filmmaker is set to direct “Hardcore,” an adaptation of the comic book series from “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman and Marc Silvestri.
The property was described as an action/sci fi thriller following a soldier’s journey as he saves the world without getting his hands dirty. The script is based on an original outline from Kirkman, which Wingard will adapt with up-and-coming writer Will Simmons (reboots for “Sleepy Hollow” and “Internal Affairs” at Paramount).
Wingard’s company Montauk Chair will produce. Kirkman, David Alpert, Bryan Furst and Sean Furst will produce through the label Skybound. Universal Pictures executive vice president of production Matt Reilly will oversee for the studio.
