Frank Miller’s graphic novel Ronin and Jonathan Hickman’s comic book series Pax Romana will both transition to the small screen as miniseries. Syfy confirmed they’re developing both properties, however the network has not set an expected premiere date for either series.
Hickman’s on board as a co-executive producer on Pax Romana, with Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia (Warehouse 13) adapting the comic book series.
The Pax Romana plot: “Pax Romana is about a Special Forces team that travels back in time on the eve of World War III to ‘fix’ the future by altering the past. Their destination: Ancient Rome. Roman legions battle modern day attack helicopters, tanks and soldiers, while thought-provoking themes are explored as the leaders of the expedition fight over their vision for civilization.”
The Ronin plot: “In Ronin, published by DC Entertainment, eight centuries after a Japanese Ronin samurai failed to protect his master from a demon, he awakens in a futuristic, nihilistic New York in the body of Billy, a medical experiment. Now Billy/Ronin is chasing the demon, which has reawakened. Both parties want control of a sword with magical properties and will stop at nothing to get it back.”
