Well, this could be all kinds of cool.
Yes, as the headline suggests, Netflix is developing a live-action Warrior Nun series. And not only that, but the show has already begun to amass its cast.
Via Deadline, Netflix is adapting Ben Dunn’s Warrior Nun Areala comic and has brought in Leviano’s Alba Baptista to headline the series. Baptista will be playing Ava, the 19-year-old orphan who is drafted into the Order of the Cruciform Sword to battle the demons that roam the Earth.
Baptista will be joined in Warrior Nun by Toya Turner as veteran Order member Shotgun Mary, Tristan Ulloa as Order leader Father Vincent, Thekla Reuten as tech-savvy Jillian Salvius, Kristina Tonteri-Young as Order strategist Young Sister Beatrice, Lorena Andrea as the cocky Sister Lilith, and Emilio Sakraya as criminal head honcho JC.
Continuum and Bad Blood’s Simon Barry is on writing and executive producer duties for Warrior Nun.
Expect more on this latest comic book adaptation as it continues to develop.
