Nameless: Henry Golding to star in Dean Koontz thriller series

Deadline reports that Henry Golding of Crazy Rich Asians and Snake Eyes has signed on to star in a thriller television series based on author Dean Koontz’s Nameless, a series of twelve short thrillers that were first published in 2019 as Amazon Original Stories. Golding will be taking on the role of

Nameless, a man who – behind a wall of amnesia – can’t remember anything. Maybe he can’t bear to. He knows only the mission, assigned by a shadowy agency, and travels the country turning predators into prey and dispensing justice when the law fails. As he moves from town to town, the pain of his past can’t hold him back, until dark and splintered visions lead him toward his greatest test yet.

The Nameless series is coming to us through a collaboration between SK Global, The Mazur Kaplan Company, and Golding’s company Long House Productions. Golding will serve as an executive producer on the show alongside SK Global’s Sidney Kimmel, John Penotti, Charlie Corwin, and Marcy Ross, and Mazur Kaplan’s Paula Mazur and Mitchell Kaplan.

Golding had this to say about the project:

I’ve long been fascinated by the idea of telling a mystery thriller in an episodic format. But to work with the master of suspense thrillers – Dean Koontz’s Nameless is beyond my expectations. To bring this exceptional series to the screen with my partners SK Global and Mazur Kaplan will be an exhilarating journey as we look to bring a fresh and unique take on Dean’s characters.”

Koontz added:

I’m delighted to have my material in the hands of such dedicated and accomplished producers, and when I heard the name Henry Golding, I shouted, ‘Yes!’ Mr. Golding will be perfect and unforgettable as Nameless.”

Previous Koontz adaptations include Demon Seed, Watchers (which spawned a franchise), Servants of Twilight, Hideaway, Intensity, Phantoms, and Odd Thomas. I haven’t read the Nameless stories, but I have read several Koontz books over the years and I look forward to seeing how this series is going to turn out.
