Warhammer 40,000 is a broad media franchise spanning physical games, videogames, novels, and plenty more, but it’s yet to make the proper jump to the silver screen. (We’re still waiting for that animated Angels of Death series, after all.) That’s about to change, as Games Workshop has announced that a live-action television show is in development with Big Light Productions.
The show will be called Eisenhorn, which should give the 40k faithful a good idea of who’ll be the central character. While plot details are thin – it’s still early enough that nearly everything about the series is in flux – a press release offers a handful of details on what to expect. “Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn and his band of investigators fight to thwart the monstrous schemes of aliens, heretics and daemons before mankind’s doom is sealed.”
Frank Spotnitz is on board as executive producer and showrunner. He’s the creator of The Man in the High Castle series, and prior to that spent years on the X-Files team, so that’s a pretty solid pedigree for Eisenhorn.
