The story follows teenage dimension-walker Joey Harker and his quest to battle and save all people — in all possible dimensions. Everyone in the Interworld is a version of Joey, some only a little different, while others are different genders, different ages and even different species. What makes them all special is that they have the ability to “walk,” or travel from dimension to dimension.
Gaiman and Reeves will also serve as executive producers.
The project joins other in-development projects on UCP’s slate, including Gerard Way’s “The Umbrella Academy,” with Jeremy Slater set to serve as executive producer, and “Bushido,” based on the Heroes and Villains/Top Cow Entertainment comic book series about a young Dutch boy who finds himself adopted by a high-ranking samurai.
