According to Deadline, the aforementioned Russo has been tapped to direct the Binge.com live-action series System Shock. The series will be based on the video game franchise of the same name, which first released in 1994, and has spawned sequels and spin-offs.
Said Russo: “I’m honored to have the opportunity to work alongside the fantastic team at Binge and Nightdive Studios to bring the iconic System Shock franchise to life. I’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to make my directorial debut, and I finally found it.”
