Deadline reports that the Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro is teaming with Sherlock and Doctor Who screenwriter Steven Thompson to bring Naoki Urasawa’s manga series Monster to HBO.

The pair will co-write the series with Thompson tackling the pilot’s screenplay and Del Toro directing.

They go on to describe the premise of the series as a thriller “about the worldwide search by a young doctor for the most evil sociopath that has ever lived. He is a 12-year old boy, and the doctor’s decision to save his life has unwittingly unleashed a Pandora’s Box that leaves the doc battling to stop a plot of mass genocide”.

The 18-volume series has previously been adapted into anime form and published domestically by VIZ Media.
