Mortal Kombat leading man Lewis Tan (Netflix’s Wu Assassins) is set to headline a TV adaptation of David Ignatius novel Quantum Spy.
The spy thriller series will follow Tan as a newly-assigned Chinese-American CIA officer Harris Chang, tasked to hunt down a mole at a top-secret American quantum research lab. Soon, he’s caught in an ever-expanding maze of spymasters, assassins and temptations turning the investigation into a personal obsession.
Tan also serves as executive producer on the pilot from Boies/Schiller Entertainment, Anonymous Content, Flame Ventures and Tony Krantz (24). Dave Kalstein (NCIS:LA) of Anonymous is writing the script for the adaptation as well as executive produce.
