Via Comic Natalie: “The Promised Neverland” will be getting a Hollywood drama adaptation by Fox21, to be streamed on Amazon Prime Video. The project will be helmed by “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” director Rodney Rothman and produced by actor Masi Oka of “Heroes” fame.
“The Promised Neverland” follows the story of Emma, a little girl living in the Grace Field House orphanage, with Norman, Ray, and several other children. Their “Mama” Isabella takes good care of them but strictly forbids them from venturing outside the grounds.
When the three children discover a fellow orphan butchered to death, they realize that the orphanage was actually a farm, and the orphans were livestock sold by Mama Isabella to be devoured by demons. Emma, Norman, and Ray plan an escape from the house, and are determined to leave no child behind.
