As the unstoppable rush to obtain usable comic book IP continues, one of Warren Ellis’s recent titles joins the great mass of comic book television.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Cable Productions will adaption Injection, an Image title by Ellis, artist Declan Shalvey and colorist Jordie Bellaire. The series, which began in 2015, tells the tale of a UK-funded think tank. The five “highly specialized individuals” are tasked with determining the future of human culture. Their efforts lead them to consider rushing the process by using artificial intelligence and magic. Which, to a certain extent, sounds like the ultimate Warren Ellis story.
The project is very new, so there are no principal television creatives attached as of yet. Universal is also developing a series based on Ellis’s El Pantera and a television adaptation of Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba’s The Umbrella Academy; which will debut on Netflix later this year or in early 2019. Ellis also wrote the streaming service’s Castlevania series.
