Is Keanu Reeves and/or Idris Elba about to get even more work? Maybe, as CD PROJEKT RED (CDPR) has announced that it is collaborating with global media company Anonymous Content to develop a live-action project set in the world of its best-selling sci-fi RPG, Cyberpunk 2077. While this project is still at an early development stage, CDPR has confirmed that it’s already begun its search for a screenwriter to come up with a story, which will apparently be a brand-new one that isn’t a mere adaptation of the video game. True Detective, Mr. Robot, The Revenant, and Spotlight are some of the critically acclaimed projects that Anonymous Content has produced, according to CDPR’s press release.

As part of the collaboration, CD PROJEKT RED is working directly with Anonymous Content Studios’ Head of Television Garret Kemble, Director of Development Ryan Schwartz, and Chief Creative Officer David Levine, an industry veteran who was previously HBO’s EVP and Co-Head of Drama for over 10 years, where he oversaw production of series such as True Detective, Westworld, and True Blood. He was also involved in the production of the early seasons of the Game of Thrones.

The new project is at an early development stage and has currently commenced searching for a screenwriter to tell a brand-new story set in the world of Cyberpunk 2077. Garrett Kemble, David Levine, Ryan Schwartz, and Bard Dorros will produce on behalf of Anonymous Content alongside Charlie Scully. Anonymous Content’s AC Studios will serve as the studio on the project. The project will be developed in close collaboration with the Cyberpunk 2077 creative team. More information about the project will be made available as the partnership between Anonymous Content and CD PROJEKT RED progresses.
