If you are a fan of BOOM! Studios’ graphic novel series Irredeemable and its spin-off Incorruptible then Netflix has some exciting news for you. Today Netflix has revealed that an Irredeemable & Incorruptible Film Adaptation is in development and that Jeymes Samuel is set to direct. As of now, there is no official release date for this adaptation. You can check out the official details below.
Irredeemable & Incorruptible Film Adaptation In Development
BAFTA Film Award winner Jeymes Samuel (The Harder They Fall) is set to direct a film adaptation of the BOOM! Studios graphic novel series Irredeemable and its spin-off Incorruptible for Netflix. Academy Award nominated Kemp Powers (writer of One Night in Miami and Soul, and director of the upcoming Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) with Joaquim Dos Santos & Justin Thompson), will pen the adaptation, which will have the protagonists from each series – one a villain on a quest to become a superhero, and the other a fallen hero turned villain – face-off.
The film will be produced by Shawn Carter, James Lassiter, and Stephen Christy & Ross Richie for BOOM! Studios. Kemp Powers and Adam Yoelin are executive producers on the film. Mette Norkjaer will oversee the project for BOOM! Studios.
Created by comic book legend Mark Waid (Kingdom Come) and illustrated by Peter Krause, Irredeemable is one of the most impactful series of its time, running for 37 issues and selling over 1.5 million copies. A deconstructionist remix of the genre, the series dramatizes how the world’s greatest hero — The Plutonian — snapped under the pressure of his responsibilities and charted a dark path to become the world’s greatest supervillain.
Irredeemable’s sister series, Incorruptible, flipped the coin and followed supervillain Max Damage as he responded to the Plutonian’s evil by gradually transforming himself into a superhero. Created and written by Waid, Incorruptible ran for 30 issues and sold over 1 million copies during its run.
