After four seasons (and maybe more?) of Westworld, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy are bringing their techno-thriller style to Amazon with The Peripheral. Based on the Willam Gibson novel of the same name, Chloe Grace Moretz stars as Flynne Fisher, who lives in a small town with seemingly no future. A chance for extra money comes along in the form of participating in a VR game working security for rich clients but she learns that the future London of the “game” is actually reality 70 years in the future and a link has somehow been formed between the two times. Jack Reynor, Gary Carr, Eli Goree, Charlotte Riley, JJ Feild, Adelind Horand, Alexander Hernandez, Austin Rising, and T’Nia Miller co-star. Vincenzo Natali, the director of Cube and Split, is directing at least the first episode and is a producer along with Nolan and Joy. The series begins on Prime Video on October 21st and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
