Hot on the heels of the news that James Wan and Chris Rock will executive produce a new SAW spin-off based on a story by Rock, Deadline now reports that Wan and Lindsey Beer (Chaos Walking) are executive producing an adaptation of Mark Millar comic book The Magic Order, with Wan on board to direct the first episode.
Beer will serve as writer/showrunner on the series based on Millar’s comic published by Netflix.
In "The Magic Order", “Five families of magicians sworn to protect our world must battle an enemy who’s picking them off one by one. By day they live among us as our neighbors, friends and co-workers, but by night they are the sorcerers, magicians and wizards that protect us from the forces of darkness — unless the darkness gets them first.”
Wan will executive produce through his Atomic Monster production company. Michael Clear will also executive produce with Rob Hackett as co-executive producer overseeing for the company.
