Steve Blackman, creator of Umbrella Academy, takes care of the Horizon Zero Dawn series for Netflix and he tells us more during an interview!
Video game adaptations follow one another, both on the small and the big screen. Recently, the series The Last of Us unveiled a first teaser for its broadcast on HBO. But Netflix is not to be outdone with future television production from Horizon Zero Dawn. Today, we learn that the creator of the Umbrella Academy series, available on the same streaming service, is joining the project!
News from the Horizon Zero Dawn series
Steve Blackman is none other than the creator of the Umbrella Academy series. Today, Netflix tells us that the man is joining the Horizon Zero Dawn series. The main interested party tells us (very) at length his reasons below.
From a character and world-building perspective, there is a clear guideline. I am attracted to characters with bases and who are endearing but exist on the margins of society. Misfits struggling to find their place in a world of conformity and structure.
All my stories strive to subvert expectations and find a new way to apprehend the worlds we think we know. Horizon Zero Dawn is an exceptionally well-crafted game with wonderful characters not often seen in the virtual universe.
Guerrilla Games created an incredibly lush world where man and machine find themselves on a collision course towards oblivion. Their salvation comes in the form of a young warrior named Aloy who does not know she is a savior. Suffice it to say yes, she will be the heroine of the story. My writing partner, Michelle Lovretta, and I are delighted to be able to develop this beautiful license into a series for all viewers.
For the moment, nothing is known about the series apart from its officialization. Hopefully it goes better than Resident Evil. A season later and a rain of bad reviews, no season 2!
