James Wan and Lindsey Beer to adapt Mark Millar’s The Magic Order for Netflix

Aquaman director James Wan and screenwriter Lindsey Beer (Sierra Burgess Is a Loser) are teaming for an adaptation of the Mark Millar comic book series The Magic Order.

The comic, which Millar’s first publication following Netflix’s acquisition of his Millarworld company, is described as a “multigenerational story follows five families of magicians who are sworn to defend the human world but are now being picked off one by one.”

Wan is set to direct the pilot episode of the show, as well as executive producing with Beer, who will write and act as showrunner.

The Magic Order marks the second small screen comic book project for Wan alongside DC Universe’s upcoming Swamp Thing series, which he executive produces. Beer meanwhile has been working on a number of genre-based scripts recently, including Spider-Man spinoff Silver Sable, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, and live action M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand.
