Netflix has picked up Super-Normal, a brand new superhero series that has Josh Gad, Daisy Ridley and Luke Evans attached to star. Josh Gad is producing the Super-Normal with Dan Lin, who produced Death Note for Netflix and is well known for the Lego movies. Brothers Aaron and Jordan Kendall, who worked on Disney’s Moana, are writing the script.
The whole project comes from the mind of Josh Gad, who then developed it with the Kandells. Then in his friends Ridley, with whom he stars in Murder on the Orient Express, and Evans, his cohort from the billion-dollar-grossing live-action Beauty and the Beast. Evans was in the room with Gad for the pitch meetings and will executive produce.
Super-Normal is intended to be a character-driven, subversive take on a genre that Hollywood and the rest of the world loves too much. The package hit the town late last month, generating instant interest and a bid from Disney, among other studios.
Josh Gad and Daisy Ridley star in Murder On The Orient Express currently in cinemas.
