TOKYO GHOST Adaptation In The Works At Legendary From NO TIME TO DIE Director Cary Fukunaga

No Time To Die director Cary Fukunaga is set to helm a big-screen adaptation of Rick Remender's popular Cyberpunk Image Comics series, Tokyo Ghost, for Legendary Pictures. More past the jump...

As James Bond fans anxiously await the release of No Time To Die later this year, director Cary Fukunaga has signed on to helm his next project: a feature adaptation of Image's cyberpunk comic series Tokyo Ghost for Legendary Pictures.

According to THR's logline, "Tokyo Ghost is set in 2089 when humanity has become fully addicted to technology as an escape from reality. The story follows peacekeepers Debbie Decay and Led Dent, who are working in the Isles of Los Angeles and are given a job that will take them to the last tech-free country on Earth: the garden nation of Tokyo."

Written by Rick Remender with artwork by Sean Murphy Matt Hollingsworth, Tokyo Ghost hit shelves back in 2015 and went on to become one of Image's best-selling comics.

Remender is expected to write the Legendary adaptation, which Fukunaga will produce under his Parliament of Owls banner with Hayden Lautenbach. Jon Silk is also producing via his new production company, Silk Mass.

What do you guys make of this news? Any big Tokyo Ghost fans out there? If so, who would you like to see land the lead roles of Dent and Decay? Drop us a comment down below.
