Back in 2019 it was announced that Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment was developing a TV series based upon South Korean director Jeong Byeong-Gil’s acclaimed 2017 revenge thriller The Villainess, and now comes word that the project has found a home at Amazon.
The Villainess will revolve around “an Asian woman who believes she is adopted and raised by white parents in a small American town, but after a violent incident on a trip to Seoul, she discovers she may have a deadly past connected to her motherland. The only way to uncover her true identity might be to sell her soul to a dark and corrupt organization.”
