Joel Kinnaman Gets Downloaded Into Netflix's ALTERED CARBON
Variety just reported that Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad) has been given the lead role in Netflix's adaptation of Richard Morgan's cyberpunk novel Altered Carbon.
“Altered Carbon” is based on Richard K. Morgan’s 2002 novel of the same name. The futuristic series is set in the 25th century when the human mind has been digitized and the soul is transferable from one body to the next. Kinnaman will play Takeshi Kovacs, a former elite interstellar warrior known as an Envoy who has been imprisoned for 500 years and is downloaded into a future he had tried to stop. If he can solve a single murder in a world where technology has made death nearly obsolete, he’ll get a chance at a new life on Earth.
See Kinnaman in Suicide Squad on August 5th.
