Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is set to star in Netflix’s feature film adapting BOOM! Studios’ dystopian graphic novel Last Sons of America.
The Children of Men (2006) reminiscent story takes place in a future world reuniting Dinkledge with Matt Reeves, the director of Warner Bros.’ next solo Batman flick is attached to the project as a producer, with Josh Mond sitting in the directorial chair. They will team up to tell Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Matthew Dow Smith’s story about Julian Carver (Dinklage), as he and his brother Jackie act as shady adoption agents in a future where Americans can no longer have children and parents that can afford it are desperate to acquire children of their own.
The plot centers around the duo’s unsavory pass time of convincing parents, especially from South America, to sell their babies, promising the children will have a better life. The Game of Thrones actor will play Julian, an adoption agent who, along with his brother Jackie, arranges for families in countries like Columbia to offer up their children to people in the U.S. who can no longer conceive due to some mysterious condition infecting the population. But when Jackie makes a critical error, it puts the two of them onto a trail to discover the real reason the U.S. became infertile; that ruffles the wrong feathers and lands the brothers in hot water. As their journey continues, they uncover dark secrets about the trade that threatens to unravel America’s child-trafficking system on the whole.
Reports state additional casting is underway. Dinklage, Adam Kassan for 6th & Idaho, and David Ginsberg for Estuary Films are attached as producers, alongside BOOM! Studios’ Ross Richie and Stephen Christy. 6th & Idaho’s Rafi Crohn and BOOM! Studios’ Adam Yoelin will executive produce. No release date has been announced for the film.
