Man on Fire Adaptation for Netflix


Netflix has ordered Man on Fire, based on the first two books of A.J. Quinnell’s series.

Based on the thriller novels Man on Fire and Perfect Kill, the story follows John Creasy, a broken ex-mercenary on a mission to avenge the death of his only friend, while protecting his fallen comrade’s daughter from the forces that destroyed her family.

Eight episodes are being produced, from writer and executive producer Kyle Killen (Fear Street: Part One— 1994, Halo). Executive producers are Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, Bill McGoldrick and Juan Alfonso for Chernin Entertainment under their Netflix deal, alongside Arnon Milchan, Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer for New Regency Productions and Kyle Killen and Scott Pennington for Chapter 11.

New Regency Productions controls the rights to the IP and also produced and financed Tony Scott’s classic film Man on Fire, starring Denzel Washington.
