Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is set to star in Netflix’s series adaptation of Man on Fire.

Deadline reports that Abdul-Mateen will also serve as executive producer while starring John Creasy, a former Special Forces mercenary who is now suffering from PTSD. He wants to redeem himself, but before he can continue his journey of redemption, he is brought back in the world that negatively affected him.

Denzel Washington played the role in the 2004 film adaptation produced by New Regency. The story is based on A.J. Quinnell’s book series.

Other executive producers include showrunner/writer Kyle Killen and New Regency Productions’ Arnon Milchan, Yariv Milchan and Natalie Lehmann. Chernin Entertainment’s Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and Tracey Cook also executive produce with Chapter Eleven’s Scott Pennington and Ed McDonnell, Michael Polaire and RedRum’s Stacy Perskie.
