Announced in 2008, it was supposed to be produced by Paramount Pictures, but the two couldn't find enough funding to make it. It was only after the fame acquired by Tim Miller with the release of Deadpool (2016) that David Fincher proposed to him to exploit his popularity to try to make the film again, turning it into an exclusive animated series for Netflix.
