Lionsgate has picked up the rights to adapt Image Comics’ cyberpunk dystopian comic series “Analog,” with “John Wick” filmmaker Chad Stahelski attached to direct from a screenplay by Ryan Condal, creator of the USA Network series, “Colony.”

“Analog” takes place in the near future, after all internet security is destroyed in an event called The Great Doxxing. The series follows one of the men involved, Jack McGinnis, who in the wake of the cyber attack has become part of an organization that protects confidential files the old-fashioned way… with a briefcase and a gun.

“Analog” hit comic book store shelves last month, and comes from longtime Marvel writer Gerry Duggan. Primarily working on “Deadpool” comics from 2015-2017, Duggan also provided his pen for titles like “Star Wars: Chewbacca,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Uncanny Avengers.”

Stahelski, who made his directorial debut working with David Leitch on “John Wick,” is working on the third installment of that action franchise, which will also be distributed by Lionsgate next year. Condal’s “Colony,” a show he created with Carlton Cuse, is currently in its third season. Along with TV, Condal shared writing credit with Cuse on the Dwayne Johnson blockbuster “Rampage.

Stahelski is repped by WME and Gang Tyre. Condal is repped by WME and Grandview.
