The screenplay is by Zack Stentz, whose other writing credits include “Thor,” “X-Men: First Class” and “Agent Cody Banks.”

McG’s Wonderland and Mary Viola are producing the film. Also producing are Circle of Confusion’s Susan Solomon and Matt Smith. This is Wonderland’s third production at Netflix. The previous two were “The Babysitter” and “When We First Met.” Executive producers are Stentz and Brad Mendelsohn.

Stentz is represented by WME and Circle of Confusion. McG is also represented by WME and Management 360. David Weber and AJ Brandenstein of Sloane Offer Weber and Dern LLP negotiated the production deal on Wonderland’s behalf.
