Johnny Depp will produce a TV show based on The Secret World

Your eyes aren’t deceiving you, though I did a double-take too: Deadline is reporting that The Secret World aka Secret World Legends is getting a TV adaptation produced by Johnny Depp and his company Infinitum Nihil.

“It will center on a team of undercover agents and the shadowy war between secret societies: the Illuminati, Dragon and the Templar. Central to the plot is their battle against the supernatural in an adventure that spans across our world, and incorporates the realms of ancient myths and legends, as well as today’s conspiracy theories and headline news.”

There are several notable writers and producers attached to the show already, including Gudrun Giddings, who apparently optioned The Secret World’s media rights several years ago.

Well OK then.

Source: Deadline. Great catch, Bill!
Update: Funcom has now confirmed this with a press release. No new info.

Sounds like the research and insights of David Icke could be a valuable resource for the real life like gaming parallel worlds content development for your series. Best wishes for this new project! All his previous show are available for free on redbox-tv.com

If the show has Said and Ricky Pagan in it, I’ll be happy :)

Btw, Flappy raid is now over but you can see the Flappies flapping away to Flappyland (aka Tokyo) for a few minutes at 45m past the hour every hour between now and tomorrow’s patch.

I’d love to see Said brought to life in the show. By far my favourite character so far. Would also like an arc on Tyler Freeborn, but that may be a stretch, depending on budget.
