The Altered Carbon TV show gets a new trailer


Netflix are going cyberpunk as they are making a series based on Richard Morgan’s excellent book, Altered Carbon.

Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman), a former elite interstellar warrior known as an Envoy who has been imprisoned for 500 years, is downloaded into a future he’d tried to stop. If he can solve a single murder in a world where technology has made death nearly obsolete, he’ll get a chance at a new life on Earth.

Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad, Robocop, House of Cards) and Martha Higareda (Royal Pains) are playing the two leads. They are joined by James Purefoy (Hap and Leonard), Dichen Lachman (The Last Ship, Agents of SHIELD) and Leonardo Nam (Westworld).

The 10 episode series is written and executive produced by Logoeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island, Terminator Genesis). She acquired the rights to Altered Carbon as well as the other books in Morgan’s “Takeshi Kovacs” series four years ago through Mythology Entertainment, the company she had launched with partners Brad Fischer and James Vanderbilt.

The series debuts exclusively on Netflix February 2nd, 2018.
