We saw Henry Golding as the lethal title character in Snake Eyes earlier this year, and he'll be dispensing tough justice again for a new small screen project. Golding is attached to lead the TV adaptation of Dean Koontz's short thrillers Nameless.

Koontz’s series of 12 short thrillers, which were first published in 2019 as Amazon Original Stories, follow Nameless, a man who – behind a wall of amnesia – can’t remember anything. Maybe he can’t bear to. He knows only the mission, assigned by a shadowy agency, and travels the country turning predators into prey and dispensing justice when the law fails. As he moves from town to town, the pain of his past can’t hold him back, until dark and splintered visions lead him toward his greatest test yet. It all sounds like an even darker inflected take on the concept behind The Equalizer.

"I’ve long been fascinated by the idea of telling a mystery thriller in an episodic format. But to work with the master of suspense thrillers – Dean Koontz’s Nameless is beyond my expectations," Golding says in a statement. "To bring this exceptional series to the screen with my partners SK Global and Mazur Kaplan will be an exhilarating journey as we look to bring a fresh and unique take on Dean’s characters."

Golding will be part of the team developing the show, which will now be looking for a home – presumably among the streamers.
