EXCLUSIVE: Chris Weitz and Paul Weitz are bringing Neal Stephenson’s bestselling novel Reamde to the small screen. Chris Weitz is set to write and direct the series adaptation, which he and Paul will executive produce for Fox TV Studios, where the brothers have a first-look deal. Melding globally scaled action-adventure with the technology underlying sophisticated role-playing games and interweaving love stories, Reamde kicks off with a kidnapping, triggering an attempt by family, friends and suspicious acquaintances to rescue the hostage who become ensnared in a worldwide techno-hunt. “The Weitz brothers are an eclectic force of nature, with an ability to tap into unusual and unexpected worlds and work multiple genres but always with complicated, messed-up characters whom we remember – an aesthetic we humbly strive for at FTVS,” FtvS president David Madden said. “We are thrilled to embark with Chris, Paul and Andrew on such an ambitious project as Reamde.” The Weitzes exec produce the series via their Depth of Field. The company’s Andrew Miano also executive produces.
